They are two different concepts:

A Domiciliary Unit is unique physical location, with demographic and
epidemiological significance. The DU has the potential of having people
on it, but that is just one property. The DU has many attributes, such
as infrastructure, georeference, current inhabitants, ... ), and is
uniquely referenced. 

Another major difference is that in Tryton, a party is required to
create an address, whereas in GNU Health DU is not necessary, and
its members are dynamic.

In Tryton and many addresses not necessarily have demographic or health
significance (eg, PO boxes). 

They are just different concepts.
