How is it that some units in non-urban terrain can get up to level 3 forts (Level 3 plus 10%), while others are restricted to level 2? What are the restrictions on fortification? Is this another reason to build fortified zones?

If you are in plain or light forest terrain AND next to a fort unit the fort level can get up to three, iirc. So yes. There is some incentive to build fort zones on the countryside

39. Changed fort construction rules. Fort level 5 can be built only in cities with large port
containing a fort unit. Fort level 4 can be built only in big cities (city, light urban or heavy
urban terrain) or towns with port containing a fort unit. Fort level 3 can be built only in big
cities, towns with port, in hexes with a fort unit or adjacent to an enemy. Fort level 2 can
be built only next to a fort unit, in coastal zones or up to 3 hexes from a supplied enemy
unit. Fort level 1 can be built only up to 20 hexes from a supplied enemy unit. In swamp
terrain the fort cannot be larger than 2

So why are ports so special? Seems like a city is a city is a city. Is it a question of resources or a question of strategic imperative?

I think its due to possible navy support, both as artillery support from warships but also from refitting gun turrets from ships as fortification points as was done in leningrad.
