Where should name tags be added on administrative boundaries?

I’m thinking about expanding the administrative boundaries in my area, and from what I’ve found in my research, the most effective approach involves creating a relation and specifying roles like ‘outer,’ ‘admin_center,’ and ‘label’ as detailed on the wiki page:

However, I’m a bit unsure about where to add name tags. Should I exclusively add them on the label node, only on the relation, or on both the label and relation?

Looking at examples from around the world, it seems that name tags are often found on both entities but aren’t consistently synchronized, which could lead to inconsistencies.
