Well, as shown in the example, to use the align tool, your component origins need to be in the same place. To rotate the door, its component origin needs to be at where the hinge should be - so if you want to use both the align tool and rotate a door, make sure to move the building's origin to the exact place where the door's origin is - to the hinge. I have attached an example (skp and dae files to import to Lumion). The origins (pivot points) are now at the same place for both - at the bottom corner of the door that you can rotate - and you can also align the two easily.
Now if you want to rotate a bunch of things in the same model, this is of course not possible so you need to manually insert each door into the frame - as we saw in the video.
