Waypoints and track points are not the same thing. Maemo Mapper keeps 
automatic track logs just fine. Waypoints/POIs can be entered by just 
tap-holding and in the resulting menu click on Tap Point->Add POI... You 
can then change/adjust the coordinates if needed or even enter 
coordinates somewhere else completely.  That's an easy way to enter 
custom POIs for any location you choose. RoadMap works similarly.

If you're talking about downloading general POIs for an area, Maemo 
Mapper does a pretty good job of that as well. First select the types 
you want in main menu->POI->Categories... Then go to main 
menu->POI->Download... You can also import POIs from files.

If you really mean that you want to record tracks as waypoints rather 
than track points, that's another story. I don't know of any application 
at all, even for PC, that will do that. It shouldn't be difficult to 
convert them, though, especially if you are importing the track logs 
into some other software.
