what about this: https://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/1/11/Killesberg_Tower.jpg

Actual tagging is even more weird, or does anyone recognize a mansard roof here?

this is not a building, neither by the German nor by the English definition, but at least for Germans it is a tower.
I would not require for towers to be a building (which at a minimum should provide some enclosed space).
