A polyhedron could be treated as a closed polygonal surface (or conversely
a closed polygonal surface could be considered an arbitrary polyhedron).
If you look at vtkPolyhedron.cxx you can see how it is using
MeanValueCoordinates to interpolate the function values inside the cell,
and then compute the derivatives. So if your mesh contains polyhedral
cells, vtkCellDerivatives should work.
