Cemetery Burial Plots as Real Estate?

A deceased mother Willed all her tangible, intangible and personal property equally to her children with one exception. That exception was that all interests in real estate owned by her was willed to only one surviving child. The only property owned by the deceased mother was her primary residence and several cemetery plots. My question relates to cemetery burial plots that were owned by the deceased. Are these cemetery burial plots considered ''real estate'' and therefore should be transferred to that same one child, rather than equally split between her surviving children?

Thank you, in advance for your reply.
