When rendering the main map the holes (islands with no specific content) in river and lake water objects are displayed in the land/light-grey colour. Are these holes rendered or we just see the background through the holes?

I guess this depends on the renderer and/or rendering setup. Some might choose to display water as background, some others might choose to display land by default.

if the water object is a multipolygon and the "islands" are set as inner objects, they will render. Note at higher zooms(12,13) it takes a lot longer to refresh on the main OSM map.
