The name "sámegiella" just means "Sami"; there are many Sami languages, of which Northern Sami is the biggest. A couple of the other languages also have "sámegiella" in their name, so to avoid confusion this should be renamed to the more specific "davvisámegiella". The code [se] only covers Northern Sami.
