For others, it's the same location, but the block is various materials and locations and shapes (some might not even have the block).
Here's a thread on BMW jacking points, for example, on a BMW 528i.
Notice this post says BMW 540s have the same front-center jacking point but without the rubber pad.

With or without the rubber block, we all agree on the center of the front crossmember for the front jack point.
