[Tagging] tunnel=building_passage or covered=yes

The building_passage tag (65 445) is a new one to me.

Looking at the wiki it's very similar to covered=yes (254 624)

I thought there was a discussion here where it was agreed to be a tunnel 
it would need to be below natural ground (ie a mountain or river bed).
These 'building_passage' all appear to be at ground level.

Is there a difference I'm not aware of?
