comment May you choose *not* to use the free construction chain?
According to a user on BoardGameGeek, the game designer Antoine Bauza has said: "You have to build for free if you can." … which confuses me.

(I’m not saying that your conclusion is wrong; I just don’t think that this part of the rules is clear. I thought it might be because I’m not a native speaker, but even the German rules say "möchte" und "kann", i.e., "want to" and "will be able to". Both versions are formulated in the form of a typical use case, not in the form of a definition :/)

I’m still not convinced. The quoted rule from Cities is only valid for team plays (players not playing the team variant would skip this section entirely). Because they explicitly mention it for the team variant could mean that it’s not forbidden in the normal game. -- So I guess in this case, we should only look at the normal rules. And there it says "will want" and "will be able" - yes, you will be able to purchase missing resources, but as far as I understand it, this does not imply that the resources have to be missing.

Great, thanks! -- Regarding your last section: I had created this question before your answer, May you choose not to use your own resources and buy them instead?. So maybe you want to give an answer there. However, the quoted rule from Cities is for the team play, so it’s not necessary also the case for the normal game, right?

@Adama: Ah, that’s a good note! Do you want to add this as an answer, or should I incorporate this in my answer?
