Predefined Location Group Names for Google Merchant Feed

Are there predefined location groups, not just what I define in my account settings?   There seems to be hints that might be the case, but I can't find a comprehensive reference.   In particular, for convenience, I was hoping there might be a location group defined for the lower 48 contiguous US states.

 

Also, what is the element name in the Google Merchant Products Feed  for the location group name.  I don't see it documented anywhere, assuming  location_group_name  ?

currently, there are no predefined location-group-names.

the location_group_name is a sub-attribute of the shipping attribute, used to

group delivery regions, by mapping a submitted name to a corresponding

location-group, under the shipping-shared-libraries.

 

location_group_name is only available in (registered-feed)
target-countries where delivery-regions are supported.

note that the location_group_name sub-attribute has nothing whatever
to do with targeted-advertising, location-targeting, or similar; which
must be done under the shopping-campaign of the linked account --
although, the custom_label attributes may help in this regard.
