There are several other scenarios than the two you list; for example

* User is on a long-distance trip and makes notes on paper, or
mentaly; after returning home they answer quests
* User refer to their own photographs from a recent trip to answer quests
* User refers to recent images in Mapilary or Wikimedia Commons, or
open-licensed aerial imagery, to answer quests
* User asks a friend or relative to check a remote feature ("Hi Mom,
is the postbox still outside your house?")
* User is away from home, but is answering quests about where they live

...while in the same session answering quests about their current location.
