Thanks for pointing it out, Walter.
As others have said, local admin boundaries and their hierarchies are weird from a European perspective. I am still trying to understand it.
The boundary may still be wrong. Many (all?) of the admin8 boundaries were imported almost 10 years ago. I wouldn’t be surprised if many have not been updated to reflect boundary updates. Time to put in an effort to re-check them? (Potentially a lot of work, in Utah alone there’s 295 admin8 relations.)
