I did a bit of further research.  As far as my understanding goes, the
"problem" is, that Put Away Strategies are only applied by
stock.pickings. But as the MO does not create a stock.picking, when
transferring the produced item from the source location (e.g. Virtual
Locations/Production) to the destination location, the Put Away
Strategies are never applied to the move.

The destination location of the MO is set to the procurement location
of the procurement generating the MO. As the procurement is generated
automatically through routes, I can't find a way to "intercept" the
procurement location, to set it to the default location for my
Even when I create a procurement order manually, I can't find a way to
set the procurement location, but only the warehouse, in which the
procurement is generated.

So, is there a way to generate procurements in a different location
from WH/Stock, depending on the product?
