+1 these are different.

Fact is rendered maps get boiled down to simple symbols.  If a  "[P]"
parking symbol on a map is to have any meaning, it has to be a lot one
could actually park at.

The same goes for toilets: imagine of the map was cluttered with toilet
symbols most of which you could not actually use.

Long term vehicle storage is not the same as parking.

Parking lots break down into:

1) Public, free
2) Public, paid
3) Destination only, free
4) Destination only, paid
5) Private

The gray area are nominally "shoppers only" destination parking lots where
nobody enforces the rule.
