    .

    I might be wrong, but in my opinion it?s not a genuine .gov link as it redirect to an external (non .gov?) site

    It?s not something that I?ll put on my personal/customers money sites

    I'm also curious. Link is from the .gov domain, it's do follow so I guess it should have some value?

    The link to your site, will be on the external (non gov?) site, not on the .gov site...

    I will test it on few pages and will see how ahrefs is looking at it. Then I'll be sure :)

    The gov always lies to you, so when you think you got a backlink from a .gov, you actually dont.

    not sure about edu backlinks though, some say its useful, some say it isnt worth buffalo shit on a nickel.

    Spam is spam. If you're site is not relevant to this, it's considered spammy.
