It is correct. For small values of correct.
There are many meanings of "pavilion" but in the UK (remember, OSM uses
"pavilion", without qualification or context, would most probably bring to
mind a sports pavilion
of some sort. More specifically, a cricket pavilion. The wikipedia
article mentions sports
pavilions and cricket pavilions.
Firstly, the usage in the wiki isn't incorrect.
Secondly, building=pavilion has mostly been used for sports pavilions, so
it's too late to
redefine it. All that could be done is deprecate it and offer
sports_pavilion as well as other
types of pavilions as alternatives. Good luck with that.
Thirdly, in the sense you want to use it, almost anything could qualify. A
garage. A garden shed.
A dog kennel.
Best to let sleeping dogs lie in their pavilions.
