Where I am, of 18 houses, 3 houses are missing altogether (missing as 
houses, not just numbers), 4 of the remaining 15 have the correct number 
within the box, and 2 have the wrong number from somewhere else used 
instead.  A further 3 numbers are scattered around the road.  One of 
those scattered numbers does match the sign at the end of a driveway 
saying "numbers X and Y are down here", so StreetView might definitely 
be implicated there.  Maybe the remaining errors are down to "bored 
captcha fillers-in having a laugh"? :)

Best Regards,
