This is not the reason. Judges has power/jurisdiction on certain territory and this is why they concern about your address.They send someone to the address that you gave to see in they can get you. If they can’t they assume you don’t live in the country. That’s why it is important to give them your current address and if you change let them know.
I made the mistake of giving them my parents address, a house that we rent out, instead of the one where I reside. After trying a few times gendarmería ended up stopping my husband on the street telling him that they wanted to talk to his wife. Luckily we live in a smallish place and we drive a car that stands out. But, they were going to run an advertisement on the local radio to get in touch with me. So at least here they do everything in their power to locate you.
In a bigger place the process might be different.
To check out if you live in Argentina or not they ask info to Immigration.
