But both my example (restricted to the highlighted bottom wire) and the ladder example (restricted to the interior of the garage) show that this isn't true.

In my example the number of electrons decreases from 8 to 2. In the ladder example, the number of rungs within the garage decreases from more than 11 to about 7.
What if we suddenly broke the circuit at two places?

(Note: on a technicality "conserved between frames" should really be described as "invariant". "Conservation" refers to lack of change over time within a single frame.)
