I think I found additonal relevant notes concerning compensated feast seats.

It's on page 78 in the latest Exchequer Branch Officer's Reference Handbook. 
This is under section D on Pricing:

"Feasts are special in that there are usually several meals given free (such 
as head table). Count the available seats to be sold when counting 
attendance, but count all meals to be prepared when figuring expenses. This 
way, a small part of the price of each sold feast ticket pays for a small 
part of one of the free meals."

Compensated Feast Seats should be defined in the Financial Policies of the 
Branch. Our local branch does compensate Royalty for Feast & Site Fees.

It was good for me to double check this, as I'm cooking a Kingdom Twelfth 
Night feast myself and I'm the deputy Exchequer for my Barony.
