the official name AFAIK is "Land Berlin"

The term "Bundesland" is of mostly colloquial use, the official term is
"Land", so it is "Land Berlin" for the admin level 4 entity. At the same
time, it is also "Stadt" (city), and the respective public responsibilities
are not separated (the precise legal term is "Einheitsgemeinde"). You can
see this in Art. 1 of its constitution:
I had some years ago proposed to have both entities mapped in OSM ("Land
Berlin" and "Stadt Berlin", with identical territory), but this was
rejected by the time ;-)
