At work in 93/94 we used a dozen 19" Eizo greyscale monitors on SPARCstation 2 SBus CG3 and SPARCclassic onboard CG3, all via 13W3-to-3BNC cables (BNC at the monitor end). Those CG3s are probably able to do both composite and SOG; I know they did the latter (I can't remember whether we had to pull nvram hijinks to do that...).

No, they jolly well didn't. Every single one of them, starting with the
multibus cgone (and leaving aside the issue of the analog monochrome
framebuffers which I legit wasn't thinking of -- mea culpa) uses separate
sync; composite at first, then fully separate on some models starting around
the Ultra 5 era.
