No but "major" and "minor" are adjectives. "Area" and "Point" are nouns seldom used as adjectives. You wouldn't say area construction and point destination
Not only that, but Waze has effectively elevated the common nouns "place", "area", and "point" to proper nouns. We're not talking about an area Place, which I think I could eventually get my head around. We're talking about an Area Place, which is awkward in any order. And the various Place types have become proper nouns as well.
In this general atmosphere of proper-noun awkwardness "Place Area" still seems to me to be less awkward than "Area Place" especially when tacked on the end of a type. But honestly I'm not that happy with any of the options.
