No, only "units" receive the cover save.

I see.

I feel like there is language in the stronghold assault book about claimed buildings being treated as any other unit in your army, but I don't have it in front of me..

Probably would go for venomthrope/kustom force fields etc also if it were correct.

Fortifications never count as units. Otherwise they'd give up first blood and count for wipe out, neither of which they have ever or will ever do. The language you're thinking of is about how an unoccupied building is now "claimed" by the purchaser or the owner of the last unit in it, allowing automated fire and for the other side to shoot/assault it even when empty.

The KFF also says units, so it doesn't work either.

The Spore Cloud says models. Since fortifications don't count as being "models", they also don't benefit from it.

Basically, no fortification benefits from these abilities. The models within its area of effect do, and when you boost that by being inside a building, more models benefit.
