Tags in containing area vs tags in contained building

Hello!

Many times I see commercial/residential/religious buildings, with an area surrounding it, strictly correlated to it and with the exact same usage.

It’s clear that I should tag the area with “landuse” and the building with “building”.

But which one is the amenity? The land, the building, both?

And what about all the other tags? Like the religion, the address, the operator… the guide suggest to give the detailed tags to the building, but to me it makes way more sense to give the detailed tags to the area. What should I do?
