are trolls and tauren the only classic races that are native to azeroth?

orcs came from draenor, dwarves, gnomes, and a race that would later become humans were all titan creations that were turned into their current forms by the curse of flesh, night elves were mutated by the well of eternity from trolls so that seems pretty unnatural, and obviously forsaken are just undead humans so this applies to them too.

so the only 2 races of the whole og 8 that are actually native to azeroth are tauren, and trolls, kinda weird to think about.

"At the heart of ancient Kalimdor lay the Well of Eternity, an enormous lake filled with powerful energies. The Well accelerated the cycles of growth and rebirth on the primordial continent, and soon sentient life forms arose from the wilds. The trolls were among the first and most prolific."
According to the wiki, life in general existed thanks to the well of eternity. So while night elves are trolls that were mutated by the well, the trolls themselves exist because of it. The tauren are descendants of Yongols (Not canon in vanilla so I don't think it's considered as fact for this server's lore)

Well we are looking at playable races. In vanilla wow only elves of the ones you listed are playable, and they evolved magically (not naturally) from trolls. Besides, according to the RPG, Sea Giants are titan creations so not naturally native to Azeroth either.
