They are usually the same objects inside other wayside shrines (as I understand it). The other “statues” are simply luckier to have a roof.
I understand that mapping objects - small wooden or similar structures too small for people to enter vs a statue seems like a good distinction to make, especially for “duck” mapping.
but similar to how we would map bicycle parking as covered=yes/no, the parking is the major concern, rather than then the rain cover.
Maybe it is proper to separate the freestanding jiso statues into a separate category (wayside_statue), but Tomoya is approaching it as they are both wayside statues of jizo.
I believe these are the same statues. They serve the same purpose. they both get little clothes made for them and prayed to. one group has a roof, the other doesn’t. this is a way_side shrine on a larger POW ground, along a walking path to the main building. They are pretty common too.
Because they are basically the same thing, Tomoya chooses to view them like bicycle parking (one category, covered=yes/no), while you see them as separate wayside_statue / wayside_shrine.
It might be better to let wayside_shrine be kind of a catchall, and make a wayside_shrine=* subtage with extenable values, rather than making a new tag for every object: column, painting, statue, etc to keep them grouped together - but still allow proper definition.
