JOSM - Can icon remain visible for areas?

If an object such as a fuel station is represented as a point a fuel station icon is shown. If it is shown as an area the symbol is no longer shown. Does an option exist to still show the icon similar to the way the name is shown within the area?

You can by creating and adding your own .mapcss style. For example:

node[amenity=fuel], area[amenity=fuel]
  icon-image: "presets/vehicle/fuel.svg"

Put this in a new file with a .mapcss extension and add it through Edit->preferences->Map settings-Map paint style.
