Location Extension showing directions for a service are business

I'm looking at an ad in Google maps due to a My Business page linked via the locations extension.

 

The business is marked as a service area business, however the ad not online includes a directions button, but it then shows the full address.

 

Is this a bug, or have I set something up wrong?

You can see the address is only for the suburb as it is set as a service area business. So there should not be a way to get directions or find out where they live.

The address is submitted / taken   from GMB. Check the address in the GMB locations.

Sorry for such a delay in responding.

 

I know the address comes from GMB. But the GMB is set to not show the address, and therefore the Ad should also not show the address. I think AdWords needs to not show directions and the address if it is a service area business.
