if European Union is the common operator for all those offices, this could
be a solution, although something like operator:wikidata would be easier to
evaluate, because "European Union" is an English term, while operator
values tend to be in local language.

we are not tagging "buildings" but the seats and workplaces of such
institutions, which may be limited to the extent of a building or be only
part of a building, may include grounds around buildings, but do ultimately
not require any building to be tagged.
There isn't a single standard to easily find all of these with a simple
query. Think about the language issues, Red Cross in one country will be
called Croce Rossa in another one, and Rotes Kreuz in another one, but even
in a single country like Germany, you may find more than one of them
(Deutsches Rotes Kreuz, Bayerisches Rotes Kreuz), and you may find more
specific values like "operator=Bayerisches Rotes Kreuz – Kreisverband
Oberallgäu" oder multiple values, ...
