Yes, and I tried to think already about how to solve this, but there
is no trivial solution. The only way I see is, to check if a node is
inside a polygone with the same name/attributes if --add-pois-to-areas
is given.

So at least all McDonald's in Nuernberg are now findable again ;)
I will test the map over the weekend and look, which duplicates POIs
there are now.
