I have no idea what you are saying

Read "a national climbing classification proposed" by Leight Ortenberger, in 1963 at

Understand what is the two difficulty identify in the text.

and you will understand that when a climber lower the overall difficulty of a route (beta, working a route, bolt, multiple repetition) these guy are sport climber.

a climber who lower the difficulty of the hardiest pitch and who climb route with a high commitment rating (ground up, route finding, on sigh) those guy are more trad.

So, it is not because you place cam that you are a trad climber and some trad used bolt when the consequences of a fall are too hight
