In an administrative sense his is a logical error. The UAs should not be
a subarea of the ceremonial county. However in a geometrical sense it is
not wrong of course, although you could consider it redundant. 

A ceremonial county boundary is defined using a different process to
administrative counties, and in theory there can be temporary divergence
(if the admin boundary is changed by law and it takes a while for the
ceremonial county to catch up) or, indeed, permanent divergence (such as
County Durham which is split between two admin counties). 

I would be in favour of removing the subarea links in the case of the
Berkshire UAs. 

A ceremonial county has no level because it doesn't need one - there are
no ceremonial entities at a higher or lower level.
