Jochen answered the question already.

That's the reason.

Node 5438712543 has a description tag. That tag should only be used if
the object represents something on the ground. If the node had a proper
feature tag (e.e. shop=*, amenity=*), it would be ok. However, your node
is just an address with a description.

The aim of the view is to find objects (usually POIs) lacking proper
tagging added by newbies and objects added by low-quality SEO spammers.

The list of good and bad tags can be found on the wiki or you look it up
in the source code.
I did a few iterations when I developed that view in order to get not
too much false positives. However, I don't know all "good" tags. So
please write an email to info at geofabrik.de or create an issue on GitHub
or create a pull request if you think that a tag is missing.

Best regards
