@SproutLee I can confirm that this is the case in my game as well and will add to our list.  I'm not 100% sure about The Diving Sit Oblonger though, since it is categorized as a sofa, and I always took it to be one, just in a very modern minimalist style.  However, it is described as a bench in its write-up, so no harm to list it as well and ask the question.

This is an old glitch (I saw it in TS2 over ten years ago), and it's easy to work around. Not all of the benches are mis-categorized. Just use other benches for the minimum requirement, and if you want to add more, go for it. I just uploaded a cemetery a few weeks ago and had no problems doing so.

 

I have noticed that most of what should be categorized as park benches are listed in the Ottoman category. Very confusing...
