I also agree with Andrew and Eliot, the name tag should use the official name, which may include macrons.

I agree, the name tag should reference the official place name wherever possible, this includes the use of macrons. That has been my consistent approach.

Certainly macrons are part of some official place names.

E.g. Tāmaki https://gazetteer.linz.govt.nz/place/55840

Are your names with macrons in the gazetteer?  If so, the "name" should contain the macron.

Care to share an example of the edit war?
