Not all types of addresses are network addresses with port numbers,
service names etc. There is "unix domain" address type in unices, and
the address itself is just a pathname somewhere in file tree. Obviously,
such an address doesn't require any resolving, and still it is
absolutely usable address for socket binding etc. (if the socket itself
created as "unix domain" type socket).
