   You're right.  But I guess my confusion is proof that it can be 

What about "The value to be returned for positions where there are 
either no partial matches or multiple partial matches" ?

  ("positions where the number of partial matches is not exactly 1" :-))

So it might be worth rephrasing, but "multiple" would be wrong (it is about cases where you at one position have several partial matches, not several positions where you have a partial match). "Non-uniquely partially matching", perhaps?
