What are the benefits of setting a functional object as a Geographical Object?  Can’t I just use a functional object with a particular object level to represent a geographical area?

I know Geographical Objects are used in Service Contracts but I am still unsure of their advantages and disadvantages.

Please check whether below information helps.

Found from online documentation:

“A functional object can be defined as a geographical object in order to function as a location, for example a service company may have a contract to take care of computers for an organization which has multiple geographic locations (e.g., airports) and multiple buildings at each location. Here you have a location-building-computer hierarchy where the computers might be moved between buildings or locations overtime.”
