Model province and district

The RCode list of municipality, province and district codes contains two additional codes which seem to make no sense at first look.
There is no province which has the code 97 assigned - Bueng Kan will receive the 38, so it cannot be meant here either - and even more the name of the Mueang district does not match the name of the province.

They only start to make sense once one translates the names of the two entities, then the province becomes "Example province" and the district "Test capital district". As the R in the RCode probably stands for "registration office" I suppose these codes are used for internal tests to avoid bickering with the real registration data.
