Though I can't dispute your experience in this, I have to say that I just don't see it - other than in the specialized cases I mentioned above.
You make an interesting distinction, though - so I started thinking through the statistical model. We might state it something like this. PREMISE: That, using only those cases where an SLR for location does not
have event-appropriate planets foreground, then the event-appropriate planets will be foreground in the SLR for birthplace.
Thinking this through... The premise necessarily excludes examples where the geographic relationship between birthplace and residence would produce the same foreground planets. For example, if someone hadn't moved far - say, born in San Francisco and moved to Los Angeles - then it wouldn't be a fair test (it would necessarily exclude the birthplace from [almost] ever showing anything appropriate if residence didn't show it). But this consideration also would apply to places like Los Angeles vs. Sydney, which are the same latitude (on opposite sides of the equator) and 90 degrees separate in longitude.
So, if (to be fair to the premise) we are excluding birthplace-residence combinations that mostly replicate what is foreground, and (per the premise) the event-appropriate planets aren't foreground in the residence, then they (necessarily) must be middleground or background at the residence. Another way to say it is that the foreground of one locale in such a study would substantially be either
the middleground or the background of another locale. For example, planets in the middleground at my residence (Los Angeles) would nearly always be in the foreground for my birthplace (Rochester, IN).
What this means is that, if an event-appropriate planet isn't foreground at residence (for any charts that could reasonably be included in such a study), then the odds are 50-50% that it would be foreground for birthplace; and the pattern would be (most of the time) the same for a given individual (i.e., a given birthplace-residence pair).
Let's take the case of a violent accident. Statistics show that violent accidents have a very high likelihood of occurring when either transiting or natal Saturn or Mars is foreground. If the SLR had any of these four foreground, then it would be considered a "hit." But, according to the premise, if none of those four planets - natal Mars, natal Saturn, transiting Mars, transiting Saturn - were foreground, then we would look to the birthplace to see if any one of them was foreground. Under the test proposed, the odds are 50% for each planet that it would be foreground for birthplace. The odds that any one of the four would be foreground would be .5 + .25 + .125 + .0625 = 0.9375 - almost a certainty on purely random distribution.
