> C = LAN host (WireGuard IP

What you have been told is correct for the case of A connecting to C.
there is no way for A to reach the Wireguard port on C without B
forwarding that port.

However, if you can turn it around and have C connect to A, assuming
the wireguard port on A is accessible from the internet, C will be able
to connect to A. Once the connection is established, traffic will flow
both ways.
