I think that that only applies to the sshd binary that
comes with macOS. If you install a more recent version
of openssh via macports or similar, it doesn't apply to
that. It certainly doesn't apply to a
macports-installed ssh client. In that case, you need
to grant full disk access to Terminal.app or similar,
and invoke the ssh client from there. It's not possible
to grant full disk access to an arbitrary binary
executable via System Preferences. You can only do that
for "applications". I'm not sure what aplication you
would need to grant full disk access to in order to give
a macports-installed sshd daemon full disk access.
