None of the SCNAction methods used to create actions are bound:
They are actually bound in another class called SCNActions (Apple hangs them all off SCNAction).
I see, we created them in SCNActions as extension methods.
I have checked this issue and I am getting the same behavior.
Steps to reproduce:
1. Open an iOS "Single View Application" in XS.
2. Open "Assembly Browser" (View=>Assembly browser")
3. Search "SCNAction" class in "Assembly browser".
4. Methods of "SCNAction" class are bounded to "SCNActions"
I observed that in apple doc the methods of "SCNAction" are bounded in the same class but in Xamarin these methods are bounded to the "SCNActions" class which is created as a extension methods.
When I check the definition of "SCNAction" class I observed that the only few method/property are bounded to the "SCNAction" class for example ("ReversedAction") and all other method are bounded to the "SCNActions" class which is created as extension methods.

I think (c.c. Aaron) that it's an artefact of objsharpie, i.e. not a conscious decision.
IOW Apple defines them in a separate type (category), see SCNAction.h header file
@interface SCNAction (SCNActions)
and that got mapped into a separate .NET type (and categories become extensions methods).
Agreed, the names of those categories are typically arbitrary, and we default to merging those into the class itself, unless they only bring features that are surfaced on a different framework or when their meaning would be ideal on its own.
This not being the case, I am making the change
It's an "artifact" in that yes, Objective Sharpie generates a category when it encounters one.
I wasn't sure what our category convention was when I audited the binding, so I left it as is - seeing that it generated extension methods.
