I wonder if there's some subtle difference there?

The passport stamp is the Schengen visa for those citizens that do not need to preapply, in all case the " visa" rules apply

So in the case of US visitors , the visa is stamped into the passport on arrival at the point of enter into the Schengen area. For others they must pre -apply , but the operational rules are exactly the same. Us visitors must have a Schengen visa, it's just they don't need to pre apply

Croatia length of stay conditions

For non-EEA citizens who don't need a visa, this will just be a concession to encourage tourism, thus I suspect that any attempt to stay longer than 3 months would require a visa.

If someone can stay for 3 months in Croatia without a visa, then everything is simple. 3 months in Schengen space, 3 months in Croatia. This situation will of course change when Croatia officially joins Schengen. There can then be no exemptions, because there will be no border controls between Croatia and the rest of Europe.

Under EU freedom of movement, I do not need a " residence " to avail of residency. Any address is acceptable. Residency is a " personal" state. Many EU countries have no formal registration process for EU citizens to remain as long as they wish.
