just as a remark (I agree that the cited example looks quite odd for several reasons), typically admin_level=8 is used for "municipalities", that's normally neither "city" nor "village", because the latter are settlement vocabulary, the former is a term for administrative units (there are exceptions where the administrative entity covers indeed just a settlement, but that's occurring either in densely built up areas or at higher (number) admin levels).
