Of course it's relevant. If the same lift is a world record in the women's class but unremarkable in the men's class, then competing in the women's class is a large advantage to those who want to win and set world records.

If transgender status doesn't make any difference, then why aren't there any FtM transgender athletes winning at the same level? Because, on average, biological maleness confers an advantage in sports in which males and females compete under the same rules.

So...it is.
