It is completely possibly that one knows that a building does not have
an address but at the same time not know what kind of building it is.
If there is public address data and good aerials available this
situation arises all the time. I could tag hundreds of noaddress=yes in
Austria without knowing if it is a shed, garage, cabin, barn, ...
