Exactly - there is one OFFICIAL source - There are hundrets of others.

Where is the body removing numbers just beeing put up by residents
because they see fit?

Does the police or other state body remove the physical address
from the public space? I dont know of any country where this happens
which means there is an OFFICIAL dataset which is typically to sparse
to be usable by people.
