It's updated every week, if it passes the sanity checks.
So if too many boundaries are broken, it's not updated.

On my device I have the choice between "Oesterreich" and "AUT".
Below "AUT" I can only find very few streets. I haven't found
out yet why this is the case, the data looks ok.

There is one example, look at the OSM data for
Schlosscafe, Glorietteallee 1, Eisenstadt.

It's using "AT" as country, but can be found below AUT, so
this mapping works. But "Eisenstadt" cannot be found below

Interesting is, that "Eisenstadt" is adminlevel 6, not the
expected 8. Either the mapping of the admin level is wrong
or some boundaries are missing, but in any cases, the fallback
in inc/address should match?

Maybe this example helps some people here to find out what's going
