It should be stcg

Also this financial year was having 366 days so no doubt it's STCG

ideally, this classification is done by the broker so don't think this can be questioned/go wrong, especially during leap year as while ITR filing we don't give the dates and only the amount (cost of acquisition/full value of consideration) and then the quarter-wise amount

you also have the tool from Income Tax website
