If you look at the history, the highway=primary tag was added by theflash
(a user with exactly 2 changesets).  So I would say that that definitely is
an error.

I would say that this entire polygon should be removed since it is really
trying to describe a linear feature, which we model in OSM using (unclosed)
Ways.  There are already such Ways in the database with tags like
highway=cycleway and railway=abandoned here indicating that this is a
former railroad which has been converted to a bicycle path.
