Is this seriously a trope? We might as well add pages for "Remove Hat, Brush Hand Through Hair" or "Get Up from Chair, Stretch."

Agreed. This is a "People Sit in Chairs" trope. One "Truth in Television" example, and it makes complete sense.

Seems like Trope Decay. The description says it's about how, on television, a quick rub of your wrists will remove all evidence that you were ever restrained. In Real Life, however, I wore handcuffs for charity once and had obvious cuff-prints on my wrists two days later. But if that's what the trope is about then it needs work.
