In some cases I would need to force installation of GRUB's boot and
core images into a specific location on the drive instead of letting
grub-install decide automatically.

For example :
- install the boot image in the first sector of an unformatted partition
- install the core image in the second and next sectors of that

Do you mean that the partition being unformatted makes a difference?

Yes. IME, grub-install refuses embedding on a partition with an unknown format, e.g. an empty partition. And I need embedding.
