I'm not clear with this example, do numbers 265 and 267 exist as 
separate units inside the building?

In the UK, house numbers like 265-267 do exist where there is only one 
address. These sort of addresses are most common for shops or offices 
where two or more units have been combined together, but they do 
occasionally occur for residential addresses as well.

For a single address, using addr:housenumber=265-267 seems correct to 
me. If there are two address units, I would use addr:housenumber=265;267 
(or addr:housenumber=265-267 and addr:interpolation=odd).
