Correct; I mean no housenumber and no street name and no settlement name and no postcode.

So it is simply type of building that does not have and would probably never
get its own address (like a single garage or a shed); but at the time of
mapping only the fact it does not have address is known; and it is yet unknown
which type of building *exactly* it is.

I'm aware of "nohousenumber=yes" tag too; in Croatia it is indicated by "bb"
after the street or settlement name ("bb" is short for "bez broja", which
translates literally as "without number").  

Opinions above are GNU-copylefted.
