Can you please tell what does not work?

When using the following rules:
  include 'inc/address'
  mkgmap:postal_code = * {set mkgmap:city = mkgmap:postal_code}
the *address search* uses the postal code instead of the city name.
So you can search for the address
Country: Germany
Streetname: Unter den Linden
City: 10117

If you want to use postal codes in the city search you have to add 
places POIs.

So you might use the --add-pois-to-areas option and add the following 
rule as first rule in the points file:

postal_code=* & mkgmap:area2poi=true { add place=city; set 
name=${postal_code}; delete postal_code }
