It would seem to be in LINZ format as it's using the linz loader ..

Ditto ... but unfortunately if government data is to be made available
it's not unusual for 'google' to be greasing palms to make things happen
:( It's much the same with the UK waterways data and in many other
places 'google' has an unfair stranglehold on some access routes!

As I indicated ... it is more a matter of what is wrong with the new
data. I WOULD expect new building  data to include the address and
perhaps the fact that this is missing is good enough reason not to allow
the import. Particularly if the buildings removed did have addresses?
