A "random" event in nature is like that. We don't know what the system "is." What we really mean is that part we are observing is "unpredictable."
In science, chemistry for example, a random sample would be exactly like the next random sample, all the same and predictable to any degree you care to measure.

If the observation is qualified "as far as we are able to measure" - and if it is factually a "uniform distribution" - then there is no misleading.
