WebAIM's list is not the standard. WCAG is the standard. Point to WCAG

Aeh...the link to the relevant WCAG SC is right there on the WebAIM
checklist if you actually press the link in the "WCAG Success Criteria"
column there. (i.e. on
https://webaim.org/standards/wcag/checklist#sc2.4.4 follow the link to
2.4.4 "Link Purpose (In Context)"
