6. Perhaps.

Most of the maps I've seen like that abide by the "one drop" rule.

If one square inch of space is rented by the US or contracted out for US use or if one US military person is assigned to the base, whatever the purpose of that person, then the entire base is a "US military base."

Last one I looked at years ago had full-fledged military bases all over the place. Some of them had marines stationed there to protect US civilian personnel, some of them were satellite listening posts with minimal staffing. The difference between those "bases" and actual bases with large military contingents and materiel didn't matter--what mattered was making sure that the number of bases was as large as possible. Outrage first, understanding last.
