Failure in geolookup by coordinates

I want to list all the weather stations in a certain area. For instance, using geolookup with coordinates with the following api calls yields the exact same output for nearby personal weather station (i.e. location -> nearby_weather_stations -> pws -> station. However, the output should not be the case as the points are quite far off:$KEY/geolookup/q/55.65,12.6.json$KEY/geolookup/q/55.69,12.53.json

Is the lack of local return of this a design choice or a bug?

Its how we map lat/lon to a location, and that if they are close enough, the map to the same location and then return the stations.  Its the best way for us to deal with the mapping of stations, but I understand it seems odd given the results for different lat/lon searches.
