I would say the opposite.
As I read it, highway=rest_area would translate into Danish as 
"rasteplads". We have plenty of those without filling stations.

Certainly, the ones found by Nelson's Overpass Turbo search obviously do 
not have filling stations.

"Rasteplads" vs "tankstation" (filling station)? How is a "rasteplads" a 
sub category of "tankstation"?

If anything, it would be the other way around.

That is besides the point. Nelson's question is _not_ about 
highway=rest_area vs. highway=services.

He asks about highway=rest_area vs. highway=service,service=rest_area.
