I noticed a couple of these as well, although nothing quite so
extensive. My suggestion would be to not delete them but to tag them
as something more appropriate. Something like building=mausoleum
might be appropriate but maybe something that is not a building=* tag
would be better to prevent problems with people trying to count
buildings in an area to get population estimates. Most people just do
building=* in their analysis which works pretty well, but things like
this could throw that calculation off.
If some Philippines residents could have a look at these areas and
confirm that these really are mausoleums and then look into how best
to tag them that would be cool. I am a bit hesitant to do it myself
as I am less familiar with this stuff than the locals would be; we
bury people underground here almost exclusively, so our cemeteries are
very different from the ones in the Philippines.
