Can a package be delivered based upon having the city and zip+4 zip code ONLY as the address?

No is the short answer

NO silly. You need a street address too

No - 8 or more properties have EXACTLY the same zip code.

Maybe a few years ago, but now they seem to look for reasons to return mail. I had a PO box for 20 years, then changed to a box almost touching the 1st box. I got a letter from UK addressed to the 1st box and it was returned.

The +4 part essentially specifies the carrier or route. So the +4 zipcode does not specify a specific residence. But, if there is a name on the letter, the post office may be able to deliver it. This is even more likely in a small town.

Sometimes it can or it gets returned to the sender.

In all likelihood, no.
East Overshoe, PA 45678-9012
isn't enough address. That can only direct it to a carrier's route within the 45678 zip code area.
But what I've known to happen a few times is that the carrier knows where Mary Smith lives, since s/he's delivered her mail for some time, and it reaches the right house even with an inadequate address.
I once got a package that just had my name, city, and zip plus four, and my MIL mentioned that she got a Christmas card that way.

Of course not.
