what would the requirements be for non-composite wood with off-site applied coatings, for example a wood screen created with 2x4 stained wood?

The solid wood would not be required to be reported under this credit, but and adhesives used in the manufacturing, on or off site, must meet the requirements. As well, if there are adhesives used on site for installation or the stain is used on site for touch ups, they must be reported.
The stain, if applied off site, is not required

Thank you for your quick reply John!
Could you please tell me where in the reference guide states the exclusion of solid wood?
Is everything within the waterproofing membrane (except for healthcare and school projects) required to fall under a category and comply with the respective requirements? This excludes off site applied paints, coatings, adhesives, sealants, and office accessories.
The reference guide confuses me when it references interior floor, wall, and ceiling finish in the glossary. I then hear comments on this page asking about compliance requirements for structural members.

I'm looking for a certification that tells me if a given product will meet the LEED v4 requirements, but I don't see one in a given product area. Am I missing something?
When products claim that they meet California Section 01350, does the product also meet LEED v4 requirements for low-emitting materials?
How do I know if a product complies with LEED v4 or if it was tested under an older non-compliant standard?
In past versions of LEED, it was easy to specify VOC limits. Is the specification process the same for LEED v4?
Is there a VOC budget method for this credit?

Our building is atypical, and the walls and ceilings are not clearly defined. How should we classify these components?
Is all solid wood considered inherently non-emitting? I’ve seen sources that say only solid wood flooring counts as inherently non-emitting.
