Pass class from <option> to converted <li>

Is there a way to cleanly pass a class (or style/data-elements etc) from the original <option> that gets converted to the <li class="select2-results__option">...</li>?

I think I need to use templateResult to do that, accessing the class from the state var.

When you initialize a Select2 widget from an HTML <select>, the Select2 code does not take any notice of class, data-*, or style attributes on the individual <option> elements. If you need to include extra data (beyond the value and innerText properties of your <option> elements) in your Select2 items, then I would suggest that you use a JavaScript array to provide data to your Select2 instead of initializing it from HTML.
