This use is rather curious. It formats addresses from a geolocation/map
service in the local (user) locale, at least as far as the street
name/dwelling number ordering is concerned. I'm not sure if this is
actually helpful because the address is meaningful mostly in its local
context, and should be formatted as such.
You're reading the code wrong. Nominatim just gives us fields, it's up to us
to put them back in the right order.
I don't think that we'd want to see half the addresses with the number before,
half with the number after if a location matched 2 separate countries with different
ideas on where the house number should be. Figuring out whether a location uses one
or the other when the country has multiple locales or is "disputed" is likely
be a fun one too.
So we use the order of the user's locale. Easier.
