Does waiting in a vehicle on private land constitute parking?

Under Schedule 4 of the Protection of Freedoms Act 2012 “parking place” has the meaning given by section 32(4)(b) of the Road Traffic Regulation Act 1984, which states:

“parking place” means a place where vehicles, or vehicles of any class, may wait;

By virtue of this definition, it would appear that the concept of parking and waiting are the same.
