Exactly. Just because you're having a problem with your suspension doesn't mean it's going to show up in the oil.

This is more like analyzing the oil and seeing metal flakes or drops of coolant.

Eh, it would if the oil constantly bathed every piece of the mechanics like blood does. Blood is the delivery system for payloads around the body. Cancer is going to metastasize either through the blood system or the lymph system (which dumps into the blood system).

Basically it’s more like setting up a DUI checkpoint to capture drunk drivers. Not going to catch them all, but if you set them up in the right places at the right time you’ll find some and learn you have a problem.
