Hello! I'm recently editing the populated place entries in Hong Kong,
and as some of you might know, Hong Kong has a lot of estates.
I wanted to know if they are counted as "populated place"s (P class code), so I can add them. Thanks!

Yes, I think PPLX (section of populated place) is a good featurecode.

I just wanted to clarify this one as well.

My interpretation of the feature codes was that PPL would only really be for cities/towns/etc and PPLX for subsections (e.g. a CBD/central business district)

Following that, I would assume the S/EST would be a more fitting class/code for an estate
From the code list:

EST estate(s) a large commercialized agricultural landholding with associated buildings and other facilities
ESTX section of estate

And in the case of Hong Kong, most mansions would really fall under S/BLDA

BLDA apartment building a building containing several individual apartments

Does that check out or am I misinterpreting something?
