My current test case is 2172 Mulberry Hill Rd, Annapolis, MD. I'd be happy for anyone to check to see what results they get for this address. Some users seem to get different results than I do.

So rephrasing my question: once the House Number is in Waze and updated etc., is the Google result for a street address -- provided a Waze match is found -- always relegated to the "More results for..." process?
This works a little differently for me (I'm using Android 4.4.2). When typing a search term, a soft keyboard is shown. This keyboard has a search glass button that whenever tapped will bypass the autofill results and take me to the search results with the search provider tabs. So I don't necessarily need to scroll to the bottom to get to the search results. Additionally, if I have a slow network connection, waze may not display the autofill results at all, in which case the only way to get any results is to tap the search glass button.
FYI all, here is the revised language for the new item in the House Numbers article:
The Waze app cannot update the position of an address already listed as a recent or favorite destination. The user must add the destination again to obtain the most recent position data. Removing any existing instances of the destination before doing so will reduce the chance of confusion.
This sounds good to me.

I agree with what you are saying and the screenshoot is a good example of the various icons. However, I would note that POI and address searches are conducted differently. So the waze house numbers will not effect a search for "Trader Joe's."
