Paid Stopover on One-Way *A Partner Award

I've read that SQ allows you to add a stopover for $100 USD to a one-way award ticket. I've called/spoken with several agents, but they said stopover (free or paid) on a one-way Star Alliance partner flights are not allowed. However, I could add additional stopovers on round-trip Star Alliance flights, or on one-way Singapore-operated flights.

The blogs I read claim the $100 stopover applies to Star Alliance one-way flights too, and they also mention the phone agents are pretty knowledgeable. I don't know if I'm just unlucky and should continue to HUCU, or if the rules have changed and should give up.

For reference, my travel plan was to fly SCL-SFO (stopover), then SFO-HNL. And if it matters, I've been calling the 800-742-3333 number and connecting to the award booking department.

IIRC, stopover for one-way only applies to Singapore airlines only flight. For star alliance awards, it need be round trip.

The rules are quite clear:
A one-way award requires half the number of KrisFlyer miles required for a round-trip award, and is only applicable to the list of airlines as specified in the Star Alliance chart here, provided there is no stopover included in the one-way award itinerary.
One complimentary en route stopover is permitted for round-trip awards, unless otherwise stated below. Up to three additional stopovers are also permitted at USD100 each, regardless of the class of service

For the purpose of a stopover, do open jaws count as round trip awards?
