Wire and rope gets "Grown around",,, not pushed aside... same as wire fences anchored to trees above ground,,, the same thing happens underground...

Your examples are real,,, but it does not apply to wire...
Now that I know that clay's texture(platelets) has nothing to do with water infiltration, percolation, or drainage
,,, I wonder what does...
