AFAIU static_vector is a different container.

static_vector has compile-time max size, has semantics of std::vector,
contains the buffer of elements and therefore has O(N) move which copies
elements if they does not support move semantics.

dynamic_array has run-time size, has semantics of std::array, contains
pointer to dynamically allocated on the heap buffer of elements and
therefore has O(1) move.
