Note that Default map style  on the OSM main page is not using place nodes for rendering countries.

It is using relations like https://www.openstreetmap.org/relation/305138 <https://www.openstreetmap.org/relation/305138>

And, yes it is ignoring label role as it is a horrible idea.


Different map styles require different label placement (as different map styles display 

different objects, may use labels in different languages, labels may use different style 

and it may be desirable to avoid blocking some objects with label - for example standard map 

may prefer label of coastal town to be placed on sea, map displaying sea routes would prefer

to place town label inland). As result placement of this nodes is optimized for specific map styles, 

making them form of tagging for the renderer. )
