I'm interested in possible errors, have you found something that make you
think your second example is differently constructed than your first ?
We constructed the relation 11980 the same way 1111111 was (or was it the
other way round ?).
ie : a collection of collection of ways building a multipolygon in the end
(France area)
It just so happen that some members of 11980 are also sub-regions forming
closed boundaries, like an island is... because that's what they are :

But I have to admit its currenlty a bit hard to look after such giant
relation and possible mis-construction could lurk in
