'map location': home address or where I am now

I just joined and I'm a bit confused about the 'map/update location ' part. Update implies I use it to show others where I am on my trip, but below the map it says its my home address - which is it?!

Home address

It's your home address. We don't track travelers. Your observation is interesting though - nobody has ever said this in the history of the website. I opened an issue to see if we can improve this terminology:

Thanks for letting us know.
