Why not ask your question on the new OpenStreetMap Community Forum?

I was looking for things to fix in my area and I noticed node 863198825. It is a plastic Sinclair dinosaur. These plastic dinosaurs are at almost all Sinclair gas stations, and I don't find them as real "sculptures." However, some people may disagree with me on this so I am just wondering if it is ok to remove it off of the map.

I'll start by saying I don't know what a Sinclair dinosaur is, but if someone else thought it was worth adding and it is still there then I'd leave it.

For the benefit of those who may be unfamiliar due to (say) not living in the one country where Sinclair operates:

Hello,

These plastic dinosaurs are at almost all Sinclair gas stations, and I don't find them as real "sculptures."

You're right they are "mascot sculptures" => https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mascot

There is a tag for that.

It's advertising=sculpture
