definition of "fixtures" in construction contract

Is the water heater an electrical fixture that should be part of the "electrical finishing fixtures" allowance when building a new house under a standard contract with a general contractor?

The contract in this case states that the contractor will install a hot water heater and the wiring to it. The contract also states that there is an allowance of $2000 (or some such number) for electrical finishing fixtures. There is no definition in the contract for what is included in electrical finishing fixtures. It seems that would be can lights, fan lights, light bulbs obviously, but does it also apply to the water heater?
The same thing also when it comes to the tiles around the bathroom walls. Is this tile & the labor to install it part of "plumbing fixtures" or "flooring fixtures" or is it part of what the contractor is responsible to pay for without touching the "allowances"?
