You also lose quite a lot of heat when you breathe.
The bodyheat that is "lost" to the building is also trapped by the building walls and ceiling; it doesn't radiate into space very effectively. In fact, it's a part of our global warming problem that we give off so much heat into the atmosphere from our buildings and vehicles... faster than the heat can be radiated into space.
As long as the walls and ceiling remain a certain temperature, then the ambient temperature will remain stable. If the walls are cooled off though, they will absorb heat from the ambient at a faster rate, causing the ambient to decline in temperature. Then whatever is generating heat for the ambient will have to work harder just to maintain that same temperature, even if we're talking about barely detectable and highly distributed energy expenditures.
And so, my original point was basically academic and not specific to the building being discussed. The take-away I had hoped for is that this is not a solution that can just be applied as a mindless panacea around the world. There is no such thing as free energy and too many people assume that because one system is losing energy to another, that the solution is to trap that energy, which can have the perverse effect of simply forcing the first system to increase it's energy output.
In short, this idea can only ever be worthwhile if the building in question is well-insulated and too hot for the occupants. Only in those cases will you have excess heat that would have to be dumped or pumped outdoors, which would be energy wasted. Better to re-route that excess heat somewhere where it's needed.
And for those saying that people donning jackets makes this a self-regulating system: think! When you don a jacket you are insulating yourself and keeping your heat to yourself instead of radiating it to the ambient. That means less heat overall for the ambient, which is less heat for the building.
I of course agree wholeheartedly that if you have thousands of folk bustling about in parkas indoors somewhere, and they are sweating and too hot, then that certainly qualifies for the proposed solution. But consider this: why don't we just put the entire city under walls and ceilings then? Think of all the lost energy you could collect that is otherwise lost when people walk around in parkas outside. You might even make it so they don't need parkas.
