Dependency claim and mortgage payment

how to treat mortgage payment , paid by grandfather for the granddaughter who he supports ,?
worksheet for determining support:
line 6a - rent
line 6b - fair market value of rent. if person you support owned a home include this amount in line 21.which is amount provided for his/her own support.
and Pub 17 states that "Person living in his or her own home. The total fair rental value of a person's home that he or she owns is considered support contributed by that person."
it makes sense if home paid off, but why to consider mortgage payment as support contributed by the person (who should be claim as a dependent) if in fact mortgage paid by another person (grandfather).
why this money dont go towards lodging support?
