Hi, I'm wondering if this is the same for others, but the level of detail sizes when choosing offline areas to download seem to be way too big for their names. 

For example the option "Province" seems to be the whole of Europe and a bit of Africa and Russia.

That box is showing an estimate for the extent of data that can be taken off line for the chosen level of detail.  This webpage shows the relationship between scale and level of detail.  Zoom levels and scale | Documentation | ArcGIS Developers    There is a limit to the number of tiles that can be taken offline lower LODs have less tiles, so larger extents can be taken offline.   For vector tiles services the number of tiles is also dependent on density of data, which is not consistent world wide.. thus the box is an estimate of the extent.

The sizes of a Province in Canada may have something to do with it.

That doesn't seem to be the case. Even when comparing the size to Canada it is way too big (adding a picture for reference).

I'm wondering if this is a translation error in Field Maps.
