In this answer you have stated that Rasulullah sallalhualaihiwasallam was present when the blind man made the dua:

Notably we read that the same dua was also made years later when Sayyiduna Uthmaan ibn Hunayf [radhiallaahu anhu] himself taught this du’aa to someone AFTER the DEMISE of Rasulullah [sallallaahu alayhi wasallam]. This is the narration:

Abu Umaamah ibn Sahl ibn Hunayf [radhiallaahu anhu] reports that a person requested Sayyiduna Uthmaan ibn Affaan [radhiallaahu anhu] to fulfil his need. Sayyiduna Uthmaan ibn Affaan [radhiallaahu anhu] did not attend to him. The person complained to Sayyiduna Uthmaan ibn Hunayf [radhiallaahu anhu] about his plight. Sayyiduna Uthmaan ibn Hunayf [radhiallaahu anhu] told him to make Wudhu, go to the Musjid, offer 2 Rakaats of Salaat and recite the following Du’aa: ‘O Allah, verily I ask you and I turn to you through our prophet, the prophet of mercy (Rasulullah – sallallaahu alayhi wasallam). O Muhammad! Verily, I have turned to our Lord through you so that He may fulfil my need.’ The person then went to Sayyiduna Uthmaan ibn Affaan [radhiallahu anhu] who then [radhiallaahu anhu] immediately fulfilled his need and told him to return whenever he had any need in the future. (al-Mu’jamus sagheer vol.1 pg.184)

We read that this person addressed Rasool [sallallaahu alayhi wasallam] directly in this dua through the words “O Muhammad! Verily, I have turned to our Lord through you so that He may fulfil my need”. This incident took place AFTER the DEMISE of Rasool [sallallaahu alayhi wasallam].

1)Why would this individual address Rasool [sallallaahu alayhi wasallam] by uttering “O Muhammad! if Rasool [sallallaahu alayhi wasallam] was not physically present in front of him?

2) Is it not shirk if Rasool [sallallaahu alayhi wasallam] is addressed from anywhere but at the Rowdha Mubarak (even though I do appreciate that the supplication was made to Allah and directed to Allah)?

1) He is reading the Duaa as taught by Nabi (S.A.W.). No belief of omnipresence linked.
2) Nabi (S.A.W.) is not omnipresent. He listens when addressed near his grave.
