In a previous video with an associated blog post, we discussed the different forms of identity in Azure Government and how Web Apps written in .NET can be configured to use Azure Active Directory (AAD) identities in either Azure Government or Azure Commercial (Public).
One of the capabilities in the Web Apps Service is placing your Azure resources in a non-internet routable network that you can control access to. These networks can be connected to your on-premise networks using VPN technologies. For example, with VNET integration you can enable access from your web app to resources running on a virtual machine in your Azure virtual network.

This attribute is only mandatory for accounts given a Service Administrator role, thus many accounts, including Co-Administrators, do not have the attribute set.

Many folks using Azure Government probably have a subscription or two on public Azure. If you’re bouncing between environments and using PowerShell on each,
