Filming location as itself

In a factual documentary, if filming takes place at recognisable real-world locations, especially if they are mentioned as such in the commentary, should the attribute field be filled in (eg location="Leeds Castle, Kent, England, UK", attribute="Leeds Castle") or should the attribute field be left blank if the location is "playing" itself? I can't find a definitive answer in https://help.imdb.com/article/contribution/titles/filming-locations/GW8UTH98PQD928H4#

Martin: I can't speak for anyone else, but whenever I submit locations for a nonfiction program, I leave the attribute blank.

Yes I'd leave it blank and only add an attribute if it was being used for a different location.

Thanks,
