Then we do have an issue here

It's the same as calling this a "transformer"

While it's a "power substation" (power=substation) building and the
transformer (power=transformer) is actually inside

Telephone exchange hosting buildings use to be tagged with man_made=MDF
because the "Main Distribution Frame" is inside too. Moving from MDF to
telephone exchange won't bring any benefit i'm affraid.

I'm not focused on central_office anyway, but we need two different terms
to distinguish buildings from hosted devices and central office is the best
we found for buildings

All the best
