Aaron Bradely spotted this and posted it on Google+. He wrote:

Google made a change to its Job Posting guidelines page (http://bit.ly/2DPO144) that allows job posting publishers to explicitly state that a job can be performed remotely.

Previously Google specified that remote-eligible jobs simply omit all information about a job’s location excepting what country in which the job was “available”.
