Border claiming code is mess. It uses vision sites on player maps and
fails to keep things in sync. Result is that players can even see
borders differently after fortress is conquered (no idea how server
side works in that case...)
Initial border claiming for new fortress seems to claim somewhat
random tiles around the fortress.
