Can a siege engine in an adjacent territory support a castle or stronghold under attack?

SE strength in defence is certainly 0, but I am not sure there if rules preventing it from providing support per se (which might allow it to bring +1 from order).

Rules page 18:
"Supporting Siege Engine units only provide supporting
Combat Strength when supporting the attacker in an
embattled area containing either a Castle or Stronghold"

IMO this means SE cannot add combat strength at all in defence or in attack on an area without Castle or Stronghold.

Not completely clear if you can get the benefit of +1 for Special support order, if SE is the only unit in its area.

It can support, but it will be worth 0 strength (assuming "castle or stronghold under attack" means you are defending, when attacking it'll be worth the full 4 strength points).
This can be useful for Support+1 orders, and maybe for some house cards.

I see this on page 17:
Quote:
Siege Engine: Adds 4 Combat Strength
when attacking (or supporting an attack
against) an area containing a Castle or
Stronghold. Otherwise it adds 0 Combat
Strength.
