Issue #34046: Courier delivering letters in inapropriate places

The courier just delivered me a letter in the forgotten vale, right in front of the temple of Auriel entrance.

The whole forgotten vale is an isolated place where no human wandered since ages, and the only known way to reach it ingame (caverns, tunnels, underground rivers populated with a lot of deadly creatures) is surely unpracticable for a common human.

I know the courier had a lot of funny dedicated memes. He's a brave guy able to find the player almost anywhere, but stricly lore-wise I assume there are a few places he shouldn't be able to reach.

The only downside I could see is the 'Provincial Courier Service' (Arthmoor mod) delivery service being flawed if any future CC content adds player homes in such uncommon places (Soul cairn, Forgotten Vale, Apocrypha, Oblivion realm)

According to the event conditions in the Story Manager, the courier cannot spawn in a location that lacks the LocTypeHabitation keyword. Falmer Valley definitely does not have these keywords in a vanilla game.

I don't think PCS would allow for this either but that's a separate matter to check.

Are you by chance using anything else which makes modifications to Falmer Valley (aka The Forgotten Vale)?

I checked. Nothing putting or attaching this specific keyword in the Forgotten Vale.
I don't have anymore a save prior to this event, but even if I'm using very few mods it would probably be unsuitable for debugging.
I can only recall that I went in front of Auriel statue by the "regular" way. I mean that all magical portal doors behind me (in shrines guarded by snow-elves ghosts) were opened. The associated marker brought by "Dawnguard Map Markers.esl" was just discovered and added to the whole worldmap.
I just chose to wait a few hours in front of the statue. When the wait ended the courier spawned right behind me.
I can't remember very well but I think it wasn't a regular letter (inheritance). Maybe it was Septimus asking to rejoin him (but my character is way over level 15) or Calcelmo, or Ralis Sedarys asking to come back to Kolbjorn Barrow, or even the Dark Brotherhood letter saying "We know".
