It’s astonishingly easy to have two addresses in the same town be different grid squares. There are hams who live just north of me who list their address as Duvall, WA who are in cn97, and there are some who live in CN87. The line between CM97 and CN97 runs, I am not kidding you, right smack down the middle of the Snoqualmie valley.
The Maidenhead grid locator for a location is just a different way of specifying the latitude and longitude of that spot on earth using the WGS84 datum. What grid square a location falls in is completely and clearly defined by the lat/long of that location, so I’m not sure what you mean by ’aren’t clearly defined’?
