the buildings should be tagged according to their function, regardless
of who works there. You might have to use the operator key or invent a
new one if you want to tag that the building is used for a specific
operator, in this case the EU.

The permanent representations of countries to the EU and vice versa
should according to https://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Tag:office%3Ddiplomatic
be tagged as office=diplomatic, diplomatic=mission, country=<countrycode>,
target=EU for representation of a country to the EU; switch country and
target for a reprentation of the EU in a country.
