I understand there are Roman locations in the Antonine Itinerary which have not been identified. In particular at least one whose position cannot be correlated from the narrative. I cannot find this from the search option
What is the latest wisdom on this ? Is there an existing discussion please?

Probably too many to list.

Are you thinking specifically of Britain? If so, Rivet & Smith have a section on the Antonine Itinerary in their Place-names of Roman Britain (1979).
If you can read German Bernd Löhberg's study of the Itinerarium Antonini might be of interest to you. It is a good starting point for that kind of questions.
Also look for the stations of the Intinerarium in the Pleiades gazetteer and you will get a good impression which ones are identified with some certainty.
