ArcGIS Pro 2.4.0
What is the logic of the 'Match out of Range' setting in a locator created with the create locator tool? By default it is set to Yes.
I geocoded a table of addresses against a multi-role locator that has Address Points and Street Address roles. When I rematch, there are no candidates found. However, with the same locator active in my map, I can get get a 98.9 score on an address that does not exist with the Locate tool:
The "Match out of Range" option allows you to still get a successful match even if the address is out of the designated house number range but still falls within a reasonable threshold.
This would most likely require a little investigation. I tested this out on my end and can confirm that a house number which falls out of range is successfully returned as a candidate from both the Locate pane and Rematch Addresses pane.
Have you tested this with other addresses within the same locator? What about with a different locator all together?
Right, the documentation I sent above makes a pretty good use case - "This will ensure that you don't miss a potential match because the data isn't 100 percent up to date." However, if you are good about keeping your reference data up to date, then keeping the "Match out of range" option set to False/No should continue to work well for you.
