Why not ask your question on the new OpenStreetMap Community Forum?

Im wondering because mappers change roadnames around the boundary instead of at the border and Keep Right doesnt mark it as a failure ? Isnt there a rule in OSM that the change of a road name is always happening at a border as they usuall do ? The road from Utrecht to Arnhem (N225) changes from Biltsestraatweg (Utrecht) into Utrechtseweg (De Bilt) and farther away into Driebergseweg (Zeist) and into Arnhemseweg. Or is the place of the roadsign conform OSM the rule, tag as it is.

The rule "map what is on the ground" applies.

If there are roadsigns somewhere that tell the location of name change, then tag the names according to these signs. If there are no explicit roadsigns, then I also would assume without further evidence that the name changes at the border of the municipality.
