AOPA says pretty much anything to do with aircraft storage and active maintenance and construction should be considered an "aeronautical use" and be permitted in hangars on federally funded airports.

ADS-B is a critical component of the NextGen air traffic modernization program.
"The RCAF took the initiative to remove these functional, perfectly good parts and use them effectively. It was a sound decision, helping to ensure the long-term viability of the aircraft." Source: RCAF Spokeswoman Johanna Quinney, commenting on what's happening with the RCAF's C-130 Hercules SAR airplanes. One of the planes still in service was in need of two replacement inertial navigation units, and they turned to a Herc on display at the National Air Force Museum of Canada that had entered service in 1965, and had been given to the museum in 2011.
