6-digit grid locator

Running WSJT-X v. 1.7.0. r7405 in WSPR mode I receive with both a 6-digit Grid JO59CS and LA8AV with a 4-digit Grid JO59.
It concerns the same station.
Why is that? What I suppose is that a 6-digit Grid is more accurate and the disadvantage that it costs 2 lines to transmit?
And which setting in WSJT-X does create this facilitation?

Below a screenshot of this moment (14 Oct 2017) received at location JO23RD
