Yep, go and clean it up. When you see a system error report because someone left their route to go thru the McDonald's drive thru, Waze kicks out a route error. Most editors use to just clear them as Not Identified. Waze gets them and turns them over to the IGN editors. They don't follow our Best editing practices and draw in the parking lots. I have them put in right turn lanes that are labeled as ramps.

When you see a system generated error and you under stand why it happened, mark them as solved.

Waze should have an application for reputable map editors to become IGNs....i think

IGN are editors that work for a company Waze contracted to do map edits...

They seem to be attracted to areas when Problem Reports (not URs) are marked as "Not Identified"... As you've found, they are notoriously bad at editing and seem to put down parking lot roads & parking lot landmarks everywhere they go...
