There are. See meta/lib/oeqa/selftest/cases/wic.py

I appreciate wic is a tool, not a class but the examples there should
help. You can trigger them with oe-selftest -r wic.

Another example which is a bbclass is selftest/cases/archiver.py which
does use a class inherit.

See above, they show how to add small config fragments. If you do need
a full recipe, then the meta-selftest layer of OE-Core should be able
to help too.

If you have any other questions or run into issues please do ask!
