When Astro generates planets that orbit the whole system like that, it
assigns them as planets arond the main (largest) star.

If you really want some center point, you can add in a marker body - maybe
set the system data fields so that it shows up as 'barycenter' or something
in the system data display - and then add both the stars and planets
beneath that. That may mess up the generator though if you try to generate
system contents underneath it, so I'd make adding such a marker the last step.
