^I'm not certain, but I think Vulcan's Heart made the same assumption about Saavik's upbringing, that it was more by Sarek and Amanda than by Spock. I'm sure I read it somewhere years before I read that comic and Unspoken Truth.
It's sketchy, but during the wedding ceremony, Saavik addresses Sarek as "Father" and, IIRC, Sarek at least mentally thinks of her as "daughter."

My thought was that it could be interpreted as ritual language ("You're marrying my son, therefore you're part of the family") or as something more personal.
