Perfect Passive or just Passive?

Dear all,
A'm doing Grammar and Vocab for CAE and CPE, and I'm puzzled.
Here's what I've got:
I remember HAVING BEEN TOLD when I was little that spinach made hair grow on your chest.
The key says "BEING".

Another example:
The building was originally due to HAVE BEEN COMPLETED by June.
The key says "BE".

The exercise doesn't exactly test Perfect (it was tested previously), but it suggests options in many cases. Oops, not in these ones.
Does that mean I'm wrong?
