Incoherence between Navbox and Category

I noticed that some of the buildings listed on the {{NavboxBuildings}} are not in the [[Category:Buildings]]. Shouldn't they be added? I prefer to ask before updating every pages.

Also it makes me wonder that the Navbox doesn't have its own page, to which we could link to with something like [[Buildings]] (currently it redirects to Carpenter's Shop#Farm_Buildings).

There was some discussion on the old wiki about the difference between locations and buildings. As it is, Category:Buildings is a subcategory of Category:Locations, and all items in the navbox are also categorized there. I think most players looking for buildings are looking for the ones they can build on the farm, their cost and ingredients, before going to the Carpenter's Shop. So, all is well. margotbean (talk) 23:09, 28 October 2021 (UTC)
Well thanks for the explanation and that's a fair point. I just found it a bit weird that stores constitute a subcategory in the buildings subcategory (each store being also in each regional location subcategory), but the other buildings are not in the buildings category at all. But that's probably my Aristotelian tendency to look towards formally coherent logical inclusions that may not be highly vital here...
