+1, you could use the traffic_island tag in this context if the roundabout
can be walked on (i.e. there are explicit footway crossings transversing
traffic_calming=island doesn't seem a good fit, if I'd use any traffic
calming tags here, the value would be roundabout (but doesn't seem to add
information other than a judgement on the scope).

I'd map the island as what it is (i.e. surface, landcover, kerb, flowers,
grass, artwork, etc.). No need to say this is the center of a roundabout,
because that's already in the data.
