Not sure you need any more info on this as you seem to have nailed it down. It is not limited to Europe however; I just got a QNH advisory along with an intermediate descent clearance to an altitude that was still above the transition altitude for the area.Mainly because of reading this thread I was aware of the transition altitude and did not change the altimeter setting. This occurred near Providencialles International in the Turks and Caicos - ICAO code MBPV. The transition altitude there is listed as 3,000 feet.
