When Light Screen is used for instance, it's said that it "Raised Special Defense." If the user of Stored Power set up the screens, would it affect Stored Power's BP?

I don’t think it would. It’s not technically a stat buff, it’s a field buff.
Why is this flagged?
@Mega-Blade not sure. Cleared.

Light Screen / Reflect doesn't raise your defenses, it just halves the damage. (It did double the defenses in Gens 1 and 2, bit Stored Power wasn't a move in Gens 1 and 2)

Light Screen

Also, take a look at this replay. (I forgot to invest Clefable's Special Attack EVs but oh well.) If Clefable's base Stored Power did get a boost from Light Screen/Reflect, it would've did more damage to Gengar.
Also, on the Pokemon Showdown Damage Calculator, even with Reflect and Light Screen still up, Stored Power will still have a Base Power of 20.

EDIT: Aurora Veil doesn't affect Stored Power's base power.

Hope This Helps!

They do not
I went and tested this in Showdown myself. Reflect and Light Screen do not affect Stored Power's base power. As Aurora Veil is just Reflect and Light Screen rolled into one, it's safe to assume it will not affect the BP as well.
