If I go to www.comodo.com, I can see their registered office address in the EV certificate:

CN = www.comodo.com
OU = COMODO EV SGC SSL
OU = COMODO EV SSL
O = Comodo Group Inc.
STREET = 1255 Broad St.
STREET = Suite 100
L = Clifton
S = NJ
PostalCode = 07013
C = US
2.5.4.15 = Private Organization
1.3.6.1.4.1.311.60.2.1.2 = Delaware
1.3.6.1.4.1.311.60.2.1.3 = US
SERIALNUMBER = 3830138

The same case with www.digicert.com:

CN = www.digicert.com
O = DigiCert, Inc.
L = Lehi
S = Utah
C = US
PostalCode = 84043
STREET = 2600 West Executive Parkway
STREET = Suite 500
SERIALNUMBER = 5299537-0142
1.3.6.1.4.1.311.60.2.1.2 = Utah
1.3.6.1.4.1.311.60.2.1.3 = US
2.5.4.15 = Private Organization

However, on www.jetbrains.com, the full address is not in their EV certificate:

CN = www.jetbrains.com
L = Praha 4
S = Praha 4
C = CZ
SERIALNUMBER = 26502275
O = JetBrains s.r.o.
2.5.4.15 = Private Organization
1.3.6.1.4.1.311.60.2.1.3 = CZ

The street address is also no present in the EV certificate of secure.powershop.com.au:

CN = secure.powershop.com.au
L = Melbourne
S = Victoria
C = AU
SERIALNUMBER = 154 914 075
O = Powershop Australia Pty Limited
2.5.4.15 = Private Organization
1.3.6.1.4.1.311.60.2.1.3 = AU

Under what circumstances will the full street address not be present in an EV certificate?

According to the CABForum, which produces the guidelines for EV certificates, the street number and postal codes are optional in the EV certificate contents:

  1. Address of Place of Business (EVG 9.2.7) – This field must contain the address of the physical location for the Subject. City, state and country information are required. Street number and postal codes are optional.

  • Adding some info about who decidesnthese details would make the answer stronger. For example, I think the requestor can typically choose this what optional info to add. Jan 1, 2016 at 1:36
