There should be a mention of tagging a feature as well as a function.

So I would separate up the tags thus;

..."Some examples:

To tag a function;

  * office <http://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Key:office>=public
    <http://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Tag:office%3Dgovernment> for an
    office of an agency or department of the national/state government.
  * office
    <http://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Tag:office%3Dadministrative> for
    an office of a local administrative authority, not related to the
    state government.
  * amenity <http://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Key:amenity>=townhall
    <http://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Tag:amenity%3Dtownhall> for a
    local government seat.

To tag a feature;

  * building <http://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Key:office>=public
    <http://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Tag:office%3Dgovernment>  for a
    public building.
  * building <http://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Key:office>=school
    <http://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Tag:office%3Dadministrative> for
    a school.
