Well a parking garage may not really be "indoor", but it's certainly
"inside of a building" according to the database model, since the
garage will be mapped as a building=*

So what's important is how we may the lack of walls.

I agree with the earlier suggestion by Tobias to add wall=no for
clarity when using indoor=level, in this case.
