Statman can track SA, watch the WR for SA and you will see it the program top right.
Run:

As for the wheelchair well I don't know why it is like that but it just is, I am sure if you asked the WR for SA they can tell you why. BTW, hitman fandom has some information in trivia for it
Link: https://hitman.fandom.com/wiki/Alexander_Leland_Cayne

Quote from Site: "In the final mission, Cayne will die instantly if he attempts to travel down the stairs from the lobby into the lower hallway, despite the fact that there is a ramp meant specifically to accommodate wheelchairs. This can occur if the player retreats down the stairs, and Cayne attempts to pursue them."

That method of death is what gives SA, you can see in the run that SA turns when Cayne dies there

EDIT: Another useful reference on Cayne
Link: https://hitman.fandom.com/wiki/Requiem

Quote from Site: "Cayne's wheelchair is actually a seperate NPC and will always count as a witness that can not be killed, unless Cayne falls down the stairs linking the chapel to the reception room."

If I remember correctly the Wheelchair can be a witness due to programming; that's why in the WR for SA you see the runner stand afterway down the staircase for the guy in the wheelchair to have an accident kill going down the staircase thus SA, otherwise killing normally doesn't give you SA

Nothing is stopping you from creating these runs if you wanted to do SA/SO/Fibre Wire Only or Flying C4 as done by a few speedrunners, or accidents/poison/wrench whatever you want; and please share your runs to others to see what interesting ideas you come up with. It is just easier for and more practical if we just have the SA, SA/SO and Any%. I can assure you I am also sick of seeing the electric phone in runs as a means of eliminations but it is a reality for what IO wanted to do with the game (which can be a hit and miss); and thus a tool that is exploited in runs, as do many bugs and glitches in other speedrunning games have that can also be annoying.

Having categories dedicated to very specific items would be impractical. Default Equipment/Starting Location would be a better way if you really want those types of runs to be counted on the leaderboard. Having SA/SO/Fibre Wire is also like saying SA/SO/Accidents Only
