Puppy or all life stages will be fine for a puppy that's going to be 25lbs as an adult. The only time you really want to be careful to feed puppy or large breed puppy is if your puppy is a large or giant breed, that's because you have to be careful about the calcium and phosphate ratio. So in your case just go with the brand of food that you like and don't worry if it's puppy or all life stages.
Small breed kibble is just referring to the size of the kibble, the kibble will be small in so that a small breed dog can easily eat it. It's generally a good size for a puppy. Some food, like Fromm, has a small size kibble but is they do not bother labeling the food small breed.
I feed Fromm but feed the grain free line, I like the fact that it's reasonably priced, that they have a number of different formulas that are chicken free, and that my dog does well on that brand. I get it from Chewy and buy the 4 to 5 lb bags, they cost around $12 a bag and each bag last us around a month. For reference my boy is only 8.6 lbs.
