Postal code mishandled

Searching for anything in Banfield, such as Av Alsina 950 (place), always returns the post code B1832AHQ (unless the object has an explicit addr:postcode of its own). According to taginfo, the only usage of the post code B1832AHQ is on a certain building (place), but Nominatim seems to apply it to everything in Partido de Lomas de Zamora.

For the case I quoted in Alsina 950, I would expect it to get the postcode from the enclosing Banfield boundary relation.

(Banfield and Lomas de Zamora are inside Partido de Lomas de Zamora)

Taking the postcode from the enclosing relation works now, e.g. on this place. Avenue Alsina is a bit of a special case because it goes through two suburbs and Nominatim has put it in Lomas de Zamora. So, everything on the road gets the postcode from there not Banfield. That is a known (different) problem you could circumvent by splitting the road at the suburb boundary.
