If your "girlfriend" wants to see her credit report/scores then yes, the correct address is needed and it would need to match with address on her credit report. If for  nothing else? it's a way to verify her identity and that's goes for anytime she requests for credit report anywhere. If she just want a account to be able to post questions? Then no, the address isn't needed at least not the correct ones.

First off, getting a credit karma account is not needed to improve credit. Second, in order to conduct most business in this country people must provide a current address. "reading" is where improving credit begins and your girlfriend can read all that she wants without setting up accounts, there is a lot of info on this site and other sites like myfico and a google search can turn up all kinds of information on building and improving credit. If your girlfriend wants to apply for credit she will have to use her current address. Chances are, if she has used her current address with any type of business it is probably already in a data base somewhere. You can opt-out of websites like Intelious and people finder as far as I know, so she may wish to do some reading on how to do that.
