Ah, but actual village/place boundaries can't really be determined via imagery; so we 'traditionally' mark areas that look residential/lived in with landuse=residential and handle any place boundaries with import, etc.

landuse is not for mapping places, but land usage. If you want to show
the extents of a village, use a place polygon. If the extents of the two
are the same, you could put them both on the same object.
