As any other Openstreetmap object, a plot's boundaries are recorded by visual observation on the ground - so they do not necessarily match cadastral records, although Openstreetmap's plot does have some degree of kinship with its more administrative cousin, the cadastral plot.
place=plot is preferably used to tag an area.
Use name=* to record the plot's common name.
