Following is a response from Lead Geospatial Research Specialist, Trinadh Dontamsetti:

For the Bangladesh surveys, cluster displacement does not cross boundaries at admin level 1, but it's possible that clusters were displaced out of their districts (admin level 2), especially for some of the smaller districts in the country. Thus, we don't recommend using GPS coordinates to identify the cluster's district.
