Actually I have 2 different cases in my area:
1. approximate positions that aren't signposted (but you can get them for
example on the website of the feature, from business registers or from the
address on the receipt when you buy something), they go like "Motorway A23
X - Y km 35.700"
2. Indications of exact meters, like 3455, which may or may not be accurate
with respect to official road markers / milestones, but are kind of an
"agreed upon" address, and people post them as if they were regular
(consecutive) housenumbers (they might also be official housenumbers, I am
not sure about this, and it may depend on the municipality).

Example for the second case:

Examples for the first case:
