Looking quickly, that's what I see.  The variable "i" in your program is 
described as:

  <1><ca>: Abbrev Number: 3 (DW_TAG_variable)
     <cb>   DW_AT_name        : i
     <cd>   DW_AT_location    : 3 byte block: 3 60 0     (DW_OP_addr: 60)

In my C test program (compiled with -gdwarf-4), a global variable 
appears as:

  <1><5e0>: Abbrev Number: 11 (DW_TAG_variable)
     <5e1>   DW_AT_name        : foo
     <5ec>   DW_AT_location    : 5 byte block: 3 60 0 80 0       
(DW_OP_addr: 800060)

So I guess Freepascal should do the same, map data addresses at
