Gray Blob on Google Maps?

Does anyone know what this gray shape is doing on Google Maps (it’s at Monzelfeld near Bernkastel-Kues, in Germany)? While it may look like censorship at first, it might also be just missing data, or be due to something entirely different. Because my father, who found this, asked my grandpa, who lives near-by the location, what’s in that area, and the answer is: nothing. At least nothing suspicious – there’s just a road there dubbed Kaffeestrasse (coffee street). My grandpa added that he also saw this issue being pointed out in a reader mail to a local newspaper. Apparently, the gray blob has locals scratching their head, too...

[Thanks Christoph & Gerhard!]
