What city has almost its entire urban population within its boundaries but also doesn't consume swaths of rural/exurban land (like say El Paso).

I think Worcester does this pretty well, only 2 suburbs with over 1000 ppsm and one just barely while the city has a density of close to 5,000ppsm so it's not like it gobbled up all its suburbs it just doesn't have any.

If you look at it from the perspective of the urbanized area population to MSA population ratio, for a major metro I'd say Baltimore.

My city of Lynchburg, VA is pretty high up there. In 2010 the city proper (75k) accounted for 2/3 the urbanized population (115k). This share has increased even more since 2010 as 2/3 of all metro population growth has occurred in the city limits from 2010 - 2017. We are also one of the largest cities not connected to the interstate so it's pretty self contained in many ways.
