The term "continuous urban fabric" is IMHO not referring to any
landuse (btw. the corine data set itself is not about landuse but
about landcover) but tells you whether there is bare soil or
vegetation (in a noticable amount) inside the city fabric (simply
spoken: is it a "whole" or is it perforated sum of holes).
This document gives you some examples:

centre on the other hand has implications on the landuse as well as
some historic component.
