Default Debunk (Kinda)

To my understanding Debunk can hit effects that special summon themselves, but not summoning conditions. For example, Debunk can be used against things like Wind-Up Shark and Gorz, but not things like Cyber Dragon and Dark Armed Dragon special summoning itself. So I guess my big question is how does one tell a summoning condition from an effect that special summons itself? I know it's suppose to be a little bit more clear with the PSCT, but since not all cards have that yet, how do you tell with out it?

Mostly rulings, for cards like Genex Ally Birdman.
Sometimes reason, like monsters that can only special summon itself during the main phase, i.e. Cyber Dragon, Dark Armed Dragon, etc. usually doesn't start a chain, which Debunk cannot negate.
Cards like Wind-Up Shark and Gorz the Emissary of Darkness special summons itself outside of the main phase so they start a chain.

Well like you said, cards with PST shouldn't be an issue. They'll tell you right on the card (and all four cards you mentioned have PST).

For older cards, you can look at rulings or look for certain clues. For example, if the monster can Special Summon itself at any point outside of the Main Phase, it's not a built-in Summon. Built-in Summons can only occur during the player's Main Phase when they have general priority. That's not to say that all Summons that occur at this time are built-in ("Spore" for example), but no built-in Summon is exempt from this rule.
