I took a quick look in Sweden. There are only a few hundred of them 
(369, to be exact, in my database), nearly(?) all by the same mapper. 
The residential=rural ones seem to be single houses or small groups of 
houses in the countryside. The residential=urban ones are mostly groups 
of detached houses within a village or town (like this one: 
https://www.openstreetmap.org/way/209513955). If that is "urban", I'm 
not sure how to tag high-rise areas or inner-city blocks!
