IP Location for Frankfurt, DE Hosts

Is there a reason when using the Linode Hosts in Frankfurt, DE as an endpoint Google Search thinks I am in Saudi Arabia?

Because Linode has no control over what information third party GeoIP data providers use, and with the shortage of IPv4 addresses, you're bound to get an IP address that was recycled from an ISP from who knows where. If Linode says the datacenter's in Frankfurt, then it's either within the city of Frankfurt, or extremely close to it, such that a distinction isn't important.
