I believe it is not applicable to the Italian situation with housenumbers for entrances, and in those parts of Germany where plots get the number you would suggest the building outline must get the number while it could be more accurate to add the address to the site (particularly where the site is already mapped, i.e. Pois mapped as area) and omit address tags on contained objects like buildings. You would also miss addresses without buildings.

indeed the tag may be fine for some regions, but addresses on buildings should not be something that we generally “enforce”
