It was TP-Link that I tested and they auto-connected without manual pairing also.

I do recall our first house bought when new in 1970. Some months after we'd moved in we had a power cut. About 4 houses in the road, including one next door neighbour.

Turned out one phase had blown and took many hours to get it sorted.

So, in that case at least, two adjacent properties were on the same phase.

But I also know, for other reasons to do with that property, the electricians who worked on it up were a bunch of cowboys.

The electricians are very unlikely to be the ones who ran the main incoming power feed to the house though. The DNOs are rather fussy about that.

In a perfect install it will be: Red : Yellow : Blue : Red : Yellow : Blue :Red : Yellow : Blue (or Brown Black Grey) along each side of the street. However, in practice there will be a break or T in the cable and three or maybe six feeds taken at that point. Which one goes to which house is a little random.

Ensuring a reasonably even distribution along the cable length ensures a reasonable load balance across the phases (as mentioned already) AND ensures the neutral is not overloaded. With three houses drawing exactly the same current and one on each phase, teh neutral current would be zero, however if they were on the same phase it would be the sum of the individual currents resulting in a need to increase the sizes of neutral in feed cables.
