Wouldn't most/all of these be better categorized as Victorian, like Queen Anne style?

Swiss chalet style is an established term for this kind of architecture. You could perhaps categorize it as "Victorian architecture" from a British perspective as it was built during that period, but it don't have any connection to Victorian Britain and the inspiration for these buildings was found elsewhere (hence its name).

I don't know, I would still call most of this Stick style or Eastlake style, which is also from the Victorian era, if the ornamentation isn't Queen Anne.

As far as I can see the Stick style or Eastlake style are terms used to describe similar movements that developed in America and the British Empire at roughly the same time as the Swiss Chalet Style. Though similar, they are not quite the same thing and as galro said, took inspiration from elsewhere. In short, it's using American terms to describe Nordic and German architecture, and that would probably be a bit confusing wouldn't it? A bit like calling Queen Anne style buildings "Schweizerstil".

Architectural styles are not merely defined based on appearance, but also based on when and where they were built, what inspired it and the other buildings from the same movement. Victorian architecture specifically refers to the various architectural styles that were used in the British empire during the reign of queen Victoria or buildings that were inspired by it (and often built by British trained architects). The countries where Swiss Chalet style is prevalent was outside of the British sphere of influence at the time.

Swiss Chalet style was brought to Norway by Danish-born Hans Linstow who had seen modern revival designs inspired by vernacular architecture in the Alps during his studies in Berlin, and thought that style would fit well with the traditional wooden architecture of Norway. Norwegian Eilert Sundt was then responsible for the spreading of the style domestically in Norway, through advocating that rural farmers and villagers should adopt the style as he argued it would result in more pleasant living with more light and air. I'm not sure about how exactly the style come to Sweden, but I suspect it was likely inspired by Linstows work in Oslo as they started constructing with it a few years later. They did not have any relationship to the British empire and as far as I know they hadn't even visited it.

I do agree that some of the buildings posted here do look similar to the styles you mentioned (especially to Stick style), but you need to remember that not every building here is as pure and as good representant of what typifies the style. A high foundation made out of stone, high windows that are divided into crosses with mullions, high ceiling heights, steep roofs, balconies, protruding gables often fitted with ornate details, ample use of stained glass in door and balconies and a general emphasis on that the load bearing elements of the house should contrast against the rest of the structure are what are often thought of as the characteristics of Swiss Chalet style. The American styles do share some of these features, but they use different kind of windows, different kind of foundation, not as protruding gables and ceiling height appears to be generally lower. It is also appears to be very common to have a porch that takes up most of first floor facade, something which wasn't really used in Swiss Chalet style.

Another thing is simply the timeframe we are talking about here. What is thought to have bee first Swiss Chalet style building in Norway was completed in 1845 while the American wooden styles seems to come into existence in the late '1870s. So if anything it is them that have to be derivatives of this style should there be any relationship.
