Is this some bug? I waited for MapBox to update, but its still retaining the old Edison State name.

For once a a simple question :-)

Mapbox doesn't use OSM names when wikidata tags are present, because wijidata quality is soooo much better (not).

See https://www.wikidata.org/wiki/Q5338425

Exactly ;-) I've been working a lot with Wikidata and it still appears to be quite a mystery to many people, which means names etc. in it are often not updated when corresponding Wikipedia articles etc are updated. The Commons Wikidata Infoboxes appears to be improving the situation though.
