first of all:

on my end Google shows you phone number: 2016-06-24 14-08-50.png


The missing "marker" you mentioned means you specified on your dashboard to hide the address.


(this  you have done unchecking "I also serve my customers at my business address")


So what you see on my screenshot is pretty intended and happens for all Service area businesses not serving customers at their business addresses.
