No, this is a error in osm-data. One object should only taged once. So 
if you tag this information to a node, you shouldn't tag same info to 
the polygon. If add-pois-to-area creates an POI, there shouldn't be any 
node in OSM-data. If there is already a node and so there are two 
symbols in the map, it's not an mkgmap-bug.
