I agree that it depends on how you define a “sport”.
For arguments sake, let’s assume it’s a sport. If that is true, then as far as I know, it’s the only “sport” in which how you compete has nothing to do with how you train for competition.
For example, swimmers mostly train by swimming, runners train by running, football players train by performing football manuevers, baseball players hit, throw and run, etc. Bodybuilders lift weights when training and perform cardio activities (as well as dieting), but when on the competitive stage, only pose.
If you look at competitive bodybuilding in the 1940s and 1950s, besides posing it also included a mandatory strength or lifting component as part of the total score.
Just some thoughts.
