Determine Addressing Level for StreetMap Streets

I'm working with Release 3 of the 2012 NavTeq StreetMap Premium data. For some small communities in rural areas of Canada I seem to only be able to geocode to the street level. The address and address point geocoders both fail to find any matches. I would not be surprised by low match rates but I am surprised to find none. Some other larger communities work fine (same input dataset) with initial success rates of ~70%, so I do not think it is my input data format that is the issue.

Is there a way to tell if a street has address range information at all? I can locate the streets that I am trying to match against but I am having trouble deciphering the fields so that I can tell which have address information and which do not.
