This sounds like a really bad riddle. I think that you need to realize that a computer is a computer. Not a home. Nor something else. You can't explain everything by using analogies (or at least this one doesn't fit here).
The same goes for your previous question about master keys.

The real life analogy is you taking a box from one home to another with the contents of the box being your data. You can choose for it to be open by way of using the paths provided outside your house and everyone can see you moving the box from one house to another, or you can use an underground tunnel between the homes in a secure way that no one can see.

The address of the houses must be known for long distance transfer. Destination address needs to know it's source address before it can acknowledge receipt of the box or "data" but for 'local' addresses you already know the address of next door in your mind or in terms of switches, an ARP table.

I hope that's what you meant. Seemed that way to me.
