What you see in the tracking verbose is the process that defined the step for the muon. Scintillation rarely defines the step for a charge particle and so you see muon ionization. That doesn't mean that ionization is the only process that happened during a step. To find all the processes acting during a step you need to code a bit more convoluted logic (which can be found in several examples).

Yes. BTW, you'd be better off coding your logic in StackingAction where you don't have to worry about step numbers.
