Rendering of OSM landmarks on openseamap

It is common for almanacs to refer to landmarks in approach directions so it would make sense for these buildings to be displayed on openseamap.  In many cases these landmarks are already in the OSM database but are not rendered on openseamap.   Have I understood correctly that if a building in OSM is tagged as "seamark:type"=building and it should be rendered in openseamap?  If so, maybe as an newbie I have missed something because it is not working for me.

By way of an example, please see node 60697722 the Harbourmaster's Office in Warsash on the River Hamble

Re: Rendering of OSM landmarks on openseamap

This way (not a node) is now tagged with seamark:type=buidling.
This is a typo and should be seamark:type=building.
Have a look at → Harbour Information, and to add relevant information.
I.e. seamark:building:function = harbour_master, this tag renders as a recognizable symbol on the seamap.
