not every use does imply a landuse object of the same specific class, we don’t
map landuse=supermarket but supermarkets are a use. We don’t map
landuse=terraced_housing but aren’t terraced houses a use of land? We also
don’t use landuse=wastewater_treatment. Landuses are more generic, they
describe rough usage classes. landuses don’t refer to features like a house or
a supermarket, they refer to a purpose/activity class like retail, residential,
industrial or commercial. For specific features we use tags like amenity,
man_made, natural, tourism etc.
Flowerbed would be odd in the list of other landuses, because it is very
specific. And it can/will typically occur within the established landuse
