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

I used the Overpass API to export map data and have noticed that several nodes are outside of the bounds specified in the request. Am I correct in assuming that this is because they belong to a way that is inside the bounding box, and are included for completeness? If so, is the entire way included or only the closest node outside of the bounding box?

The answer depends a bit on your query. Can you add that detail to your question please. Best is to use a share link in overpass-turbo.eu.

As far as I am aware, there are included to compete the data from within the bounded box, but only the nodes necessary to do this are included, not the entire way.
