Update on my example I gave. We changed it to
addr:housename=Residentie Den Oude Post

A more complex example:

So this is Kasteelstraat 5
The bank that's located on the bottom floor is on Kasteelstraat 5 (so the
POI node has that address)
At the side of the building there is an entrance for the flats/units.
I mapped that as an entrance https://www.openstreetmap.org/node/7025498816
Should that entrance node also have the
tag or is it assumed based on it being placed on the building's way?
