I checked the spot it is usually at on these types of buildings before checking inside and below, but could not see a survey beacon anywhere.

I suppose it could have its coordinates messed up and is placed inside the wall due to the height difference between the two.

Thank you @Surgent179 for reporting this!

 

The video really clearly shows this. Pretty weird.

I had this happen yesterday, 8/27/20, at thermal station. The map said there was a beacon at the solo round house, and it was nowhere to be found.
