Speed limits in OpenStreetMap are entered by the many volunteers that update the map data. Mostly that will be done based om what has been observed riding along a road. Over time speed limits might have changed. If no limits are mapped apps might assume default limits.

You can start correcting wrong limits yourself. Give it a try. Zoom to the offending road on www.openstreetmap.org, create a user account, hit the edit button on the top left and start editing. The editor is quite self explanatory and offers a new user tutorial. But should you still have questions come back here for further help.
