Interestingly, there are other bookstores with that same residential model with the sign next to it, and other stores with the same model as the store that hve no signs, that are not bookstores.
Sorry for the late reply. With situations like this, there isn't always a clearly correct answer so I have to make a judgement call about what it looks like Bethesda's intention was. In this case, I made my decision mainly by looking at the interiors. The book shop's interior has a dozen bookshelves and a man that was in the Merchant faction. The house conversely had an interior that had the usual furnishings for a home and the man inside was not a member of any faction.
These lead me to believe that these buildings are correctly labelled. An argument could be made that the book store was meant to be a library but it's not certain enough for me to make that change.
Additionally, in that same Block, there is another bookstore whose interior is an exact copy of the residence above. The book shop sign outside as well as the man inside being in the Merchant faction this time made me conclude that this time, Bethesda deliberately copy-pasted that interior and lazily converted it into a book shop.
That said, if you can give me any other examples of buildings that you believe are coded with wrong data or bugged, I'm willing to take a look.
