If these are 'places' then they should be tagged as 'places'.
If the 'place' can be verified as a line then tag it as a line.
BUT the old map may simply be using the text placement as an indication
of an area rather than a line.
I would not rely on the map/s alone .. needs a bit more investigation?
place=locality has some 7,800 uses as a line presently.
So I would use it as a line until more information is available. Add a
note to that effect?
