Based on my usage, the latter (do not join to existing parents of the node).

I like this. I'm often dealing with administrative boundaries that run down
the centerlines of streets, and have to move either the boundary or the
street to join a new cross-street.
Of course, I'd really like to see the ability to ignore admin boundaries
completely (perhaps during download), as they almost always are simply in
the way, either because they have been glued to roads, or because they are
close to roads. A similar problem exists with some landuse=* ways that
people have glued to roads.
