> ... I wanted to express "person P was born in building B" in Wikidata,

imho: my proposal for example for "Haydn's birthplace"

one tag for a memorial

subject:wikidata=Q7349    ( https://www.wikidata.org/wiki/Q7349  Joseph
Haydn )  it is an extra;  but useful for some programs.

and another tag for the building.

wikidata=Q1375165           ( https://www.wikidata.org/wiki/Q1375165 Haydn's
birthplace )


there is a https://www.wikidata.org/wiki/Q19979289

*"building where someone was deemed to be born, not a hospital. Add this in
P31 in addition to properties about the architecture or function of the
building. If it's the actual place of birth of the person, add the house in
P19 of the person's item"*
