Calendar - Location: what happens when using my own way of entering locations

Outlook > Calendar > Location: when entering a city there, it often offers a location (city) in a wrong format.
No doubt the locations are retrieved from some sort of location tables within Office, but it regularly happens they have the wrong format.

For example:
CITY (just city only, no country/state, or anything else)
CITY (CITY, PROVINCE) (also country is missing)
CITY CITY PROVINCE (same as above, but no brackets)

I prefer the method:
CITY, COUNTRY (which is fine and in case of many other cities, this 'format' is also offered)

I didn't try, but wonder what happens when I use/enter my 'own' format (CITY, COUNTRY) where this is not offered by Outlook.
Assume this is stored locally, i.e. available for me only?
In what files?
In case of a fresh Office install, probably those entries are cleared and I should restore them one way or the other?

Thanks!

If your outlook is looking up the address, it should use the proper format for your location.... but you can type a location in.

Depending on your version of outlook, it will store the last 10 locations in a registry key.

This format does not store entries you type in:

The old style location and key to clear it is here -
