Conflict value between properties "location" and "locations" for the same event fetched through Graph API

There're some events I get through Graph API that have different value in properties "location" and "locations". For example

Value for "location"

"location": {
    "displayName": "社内ミーティングスペース",
    "locationType": "default",
    "uniqueId": "社内ミーティングスペース",
    "uniqueIdType": "private"
  }

Value for "locations" in that same event

"locations": [
    {
      "displayName": "社内ミーティングスペース",
      "locationType": "default",
      "uniqueId": "",
      "uniqueIdType": "unknown"
    }
  ]

I don't know why this happened, weeks before they shared the same value for uniqueId and uniqueIdType. This causes some bugs on my app. Is there anyone has the same problem and tell me what kind of event that could have this problem. Thank you

    Thank you for reaching out.

    Please refer to the below parameters for events API call.

    This explains the values being returned.

    You will also see a similar experience in the sample API response being talked about in the docs.

    HTTP/1.1 200 OK
    Content-type: application/json
    Preference-Applied: outlook.timezone="Pacific Standard Time"

    },
    "emailAddress":{

    }
    ],
    "organizer":{
    "emailAddress":{

    "address":"samanthab@a830edad905084922E17020313.onmicrosoft.com"
    }
    }
    }
    ]
    }

    Hope this answers.
    Thanks.
