The source ways of the multipolygon are tagged with mkgmap:stylefilter=polyline, so that they are only handled by the line style. This allows to visualize boundaries although the boundary multipolygon is not fully contained in the tile. From my point of view, the area tag is relevant for tags that could either be used as line or as polygon. If you create a square tagged with highway=pedestrian the place inbetween could either belong to the pedestrian area (area=yes) or could be not accessible (area=no or not set). But I admit that the area tag was used in multiple variants and I am not a very up2date in OSM tagging guidelines. WanMil
