Just curious, do these Brey Krause harness truss do anything to increase the body rigidity?

They are mounted on the the holes in the B-pillar area, which looks pretty solid. The truss itself looks pretty solid as well.

I mean I understand nowadays reinforcement bars don't do a whole lot to newer cars and the purpose of having the truss isn't to improve rigidity, but just curious if anyone felt it did something.

I doubt that it would increase rigidity any more than any other harness bar. Even if it did, I don't think you would notice. A properly braced roll bar might work.
I see. I've always wanted a roll bar ... especially now that I have a proper 6 pt harness. Except local DOT regulations do not allow for that (which I don't understand when the bar is entirely behind the seats)

I had the BK truss in my CS and did not notice a difference in rigidity, but I did when I installed a BM roll bar. Went to roll bar for additional safety compared to roll bar
