It's because the geometry of Mississippi was incorrect in the basemap, on a layer that we can't edit. You can see this by checking unnamed roads to see what state they're labeled with. If a street came from the basemap with a name, it also had the city and state attached to it. If the street had no name, then some automatic process pulled the state from a geometric outline in an invisible layer, and that layer was wrong. You get similar results by creating a new road, except now, you get an error that you're too far from the state you selected. (Prior to a few months ago, it'd let you save and contribute to the smear.)
Close to the coast, it stops around Gulfport, but if you get 30 or 40 miles inland, I see unnamed roads in Mississippi with Louisiana on them almost to the Alabama line.
Ah, OK. How much of a priority should it be for us to go around and fix the state names on unnamed roads? Is it going to adversely affect routing?
