That's right. Even when the IP WHOIS data days UK(or any other country), the server will be anyway located in FR, and that may be considered by some GEOIP databases. That also happend in the BHS (Canadian) OVH datacenters, where US IP addresses are detected as CA, because the server is located there.

Not really much you or OVH can do about it. GEOIP databases are a weird science. For example, even when google detects my server's IPv4 address as Canadian, it detects my server's IPv6 address as German. No idea why, but I get Google in German

Despite it being geo located in the UK most networks will still recognise that it is actually in France, your best bet really is going to be to get a server thats located within the UK itself.
