The 200 amp breaker is just a disconnect as you say, that's ok. I would explain that in the report, 100 amp service with a 200 amp disconnect switch.

90 amps, could there be an electric furnace? A subpanel?

I think I would call for an electrician do a load calculation.

When I was bent over looking at something I saw the graceful figure of a lady next door. I couldn't quite see her face. Later on from the ladder it was a toothless wrinkled up affair. Super tweaker. Nice park.

Thanks for the responses.

Just to clarify, that furnace is never going to draw anything close to 90 amps. When it's really cranking, it'll draw about 63 amps. The feeder is sized so that 63 amps is just below 80% of its ampacity (80 amps) and the breaker is the next size up.

If you were to do a load calc, the 100 amp service would probably be barely adequate, depending on the actual square footage, and the appliances that were installed.
