Doesn't  it  depend  on  what continent I am in? I am in Asia and if a
European is calling me it worth me 3 points anyway.

This  is  not  about  points,  this is about a situation when I call a
station,  and  how  do  you  think,  what  a guy on the receiving side
expects  to  hear  from me? Definitely he expects 59917 or 59918, just
because he hears a call from Asiatic Russia.
