Well, the main focus of wxWidgets lies on providing GUI functionality. Therefore the wxWidgets core developers are reluctant to add non-GUI components.

In an earlier version of wxWidgets an ODBC component was part of the core library, but it was dropped due to missing developer capacities to maintain it. Therefore it is very unlikely that other database connectivity components like wxSQLite3 (or wxDatabase) will be added.

wxSQLite3 can be compiled as a static or shared library using a static or shared version of wxWidgets. This makes it easy to use the component in wxWidgets based applications.
