Hey there,

The most recent developer-diary showed some minor tweaks to the provinces of Taiwan, but the city-locations are still off:
index.php

1: Tainan; its name was changed from Sakam. A good choice, as Sakam was the native name for the village where the Dutch built Fort Zeelandia. The city-location is the only thing that needs a bit of fixing. Also, Zeelandia could be the dynamic province-name for the Dutch culture. This was the capital of Dutch Formosa and conquered by Koxinga later on.
2: Taichung; The old Middag-province (or a dynamic province-name for it). I changed its location, the typo also needs to be fixed. Middag could still be the Polynesian name for this province, as the aboriginals had a small kingdom with this name around the location of modern-day Taichung.
3: Taipei; Renamed from Kelang/Keelung, which makes sense when not under Polynesian control. The green dot indicates the location of Spanish Formosa's capital, San Salvador (which was in the location of Kelang/Keelung). This could be the Spanish dynamic province-name, still, as it's close to Taipei as well. Taipei itself is located at the red dot, so the city should be moved there.

Some maps for reference:

I'm pretty sure that Tainan, "Taiching" and Taipei are just the Chinese dynamic province names for Sakam, Middag and Keelung. The original province names are probably still there.

I think that as well, but I'm advocating for the town-fixes and Dutch/Spanish dynamic names mostly.

Anyway, these new names (supposedly dynamic ones for Chinese cultures) aren't present in the current version of EU4.
