FWIW, an additional reference could be the CLDR Survey Tool
(http://cldr.unicode.org/index/survey-tool) which provides also an
interface to query values:

https://st.unicode.org/cldr-apps/

If you go from there to CLDR Survey Tool -> <locale> -> Numbers ->
Symbols -> Group it'll show U+00A0 instead of U+0020 for the earlier
mentioned case examples (and other locales using NBSP).
