Generally speaking they can, of course, but in case of default osm-carto 
rendering there's no chance currently, since Andy is totally opposed to 
any subjective measures:


However if we can find some - more or less - objective features, they 
could have some weight in rendering algorithm. In case of cities it's 
being/not being the admin_centre or population numbers, but I don't know 
what features could it be for volcanos. Maybe elevation, caldera 
diameter or being a tourist attraction?
