I think you're correct that the guard in the staircase room only spawns when you kill the guard that zips down in front of the door. I remember watching a speedrun and the player jumped past the guard without killing them and there were no guards then in the staircase area.

In my playthroughs I remember seeing everything from no guards to one guard before ascending the stairs to one guard before and another after coming down the staircase. But it's likely due to which guards you actually kill, not just KO or avoid.
