It's both.  The relation (specifically, boundary and multipolygon
relations) is meant to describe not just some borders of a region, but
all of its borders, in a way to make it clear whether a given point is
in that region or not.  Therefore, the relation defines a region.  You
put tags on the relation, so you are effectively tagging the region,
not just its borders.  (Note specifically the name tag.  If a boundary
relation is done right, that name will usually be rendered in the
center of the region, instead of or in addition to around its edges.)
