Copying Brian¹s answer as well for context.
That isn't applicable as far as I know.  The location option is used
between the two infrastructure devices (LMA and MAG) providing the proxy
mobility service.  The actual user's location is not being carried and
the MAG is not a mobile platform.


Yes, I agree. The civic location is that of the MAG (and not the end-user)
and the MAG is typically on a router, access point, etc.

The operator-identifier (which contains realm) is optional. They can
choose to not send it if they have no realm.
