When using the French Language option to populate the location the separators are automatically added.

602 Separators in Birth Location 

632 Separators in Death Location

662 Separators in Marriage Location

Why?

There are less than 50 suggestions for those 2 towns (Westward Ho!, Saint-Louis-du-Ha! Ha!).

I did exclude them from the report.

Another instance when this suggestion occurs without real reason is when the house address is used eg "street number, area ID, town, county, country".
If it is what you wrote, It shouldn't. Can you provide an example.

de l’ Ecluse Hendrik de l’ Ecluse 4 Sep 1830 Leiden, Koesteeg wijk 6 nr 178
So without single quote, that was for the post here.
This is not a Location suggestion. It is a Name suggestion. And I think angled quote should be replaced with a normal quote.

Okay, other example. See the list of this manager for multiple examples that are 'logical' location for a Dutch sourced profile. I see the use of the wrong quote item. Nasty, as that is common in some areas/decades.

Gerardus Wilhelmus Rosier 22 Feb 1835 ’s Hertogenbosch, Markt wijk A nr 28 11 Aug 1866 ‘s Hertogenbosch, Oude Tolbrugstraat wijk C nr 191
In this case, this profile has one location with "open/left" quote and one with "clos/right" quote. Neither is using the normal quote. It has 2 suggestions, one for each location.

There are a few places in the world where the separator, in this case !, is a valid part of the location name and Saint-Louis-du-Ha! Ha! is one example of that (see https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Saint-Louis-du-Ha!_Ha!). Another example is Westward Ho! (see https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Westward_Ho!). In those cases you should just mark it as a False Suggestion.

The exclamation marks are the separator but they are a valid part of the  name: https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Saint-Louis-du-Ha!_Ha! 

I assume that the English seaside town,  Westward Ho! would also be flagged as an error.

My first instinct would be mark the suggestion as false . Perhaps,  Ales might be able to make these  as exceptions. ( it looks as if these are the  only two towns that have an officially sanction exclamation mark ).https://www.guinnessworldrecords.com/world-records/452331-most-exclamation-marks-in-a-town-name
