Generic value for cobblestone in the colloquial sense. It's better to use a more precise value such as sett or unhewn_cobblestone

Main problem with surface=cobblestone is conflict between typical use of that term both for sett (stones cut/broken but not machined to be flat) and for true cobblestone.

surface paving_stones Paving stones have relatively smooth surface. The surface is paved with artificial blocks (block pavers, bricks) or natural stones (flagstones), with a flat top. The gaps between individual paving stones are very narrow, either because the stones have a perfectly regular shape (rectangular, or any surface-filling shape) or because they have been carefully selected, fitted and placed in order to form an even, closed surface.
