It probably makes sense to change the existing names for the fast (JS, currently “static”) and slow (CSS, currently “dynamic”) selector profiles.

For example, using the “dynamic” term for something CSS-related is confusing given that dynamics is usually related to JS, while “static” in webdev is usually about something where JS is not involved: e.g. “static page” as opposed to a page where JS is used to add some dynamics.

So something like “One-shot” or “One-time” (for the JS-oriented profile) and “Iterative” or “Recursive” (for the CSS-oriented profile) would probably be more intuitive names for selector performance profiles.
