This tag is a popular way to tag office blocks.
Office block typically houses companies, but offices may be also rented by any other kind of organization like charities, government, any NGO etc.
Typical office building will have one or more office=* objects inside.
Note that some offices (marked with office=*) can be also in buildings of other types. For example former church building repurposed as an office will be still tagged as building=church, possibly with building:use=* on it.
It is preferable over building=commercial as commercial buildings include not only offices but also broad range of other building types - ranging from self-storage warehouses through cinemas to hotels and buildings intended as restaurants.
