That is not how the tag is used.
water=reservoir is primarily used for dammed rivers. landuse=basin is
mostly used for water areas created artificially where there was no
pre-existing waterbody. If in your area these are mostly temporarily
water filled that is due to climate and not a universal characteristic.
