Removing/reimporting just those pictures changed nothing.  Still saw the flag.

BUT, removing the ENTIRE collection, closing/reopening Digikam, then re-attaching the entire collection and waiting for Digikam to re-init everything finally fixed it.

Those images no longer have those Geo flags displayed.

So it sounds like the problem was in the Digikam database?

Shouldn't the reread/rewrite/Maintenance steps have taken care of that?  Is that a bug?
