This feature has been labeled as deprecated. The recommended replacement is: height=*.
The reason is documented in Deprecated features. You are still free to continue to use or interpret this tag as you see fit since OpenStreetMap does not have “banned features”.
Under no circumstances should you (semi-)automatically change “deprecated” tags to something else in the database on a large scale without conforming to the Automated Edits code of conduct. Any such change will be reverted.

The key building:height=* is deprecated but still found often to describe the height of a building. To tag the total height of a building please use height=* instead.
