I have downloaded the STP Mobile App, ahead of the 2020/21 year. (The company’s only employee is a closely held employee, so we elected to commence from 1 July 2020.)

The employee gets paid monthly, and his superannuation (which includes salary sacrifice) is paid once a quarter.

When entering a pay run for reporting to the ATO, what gets included at the superannuation section? 9.5% of the month’s gross wage? And does the actual payment of superannuation have get separately reported, with zero gross wages, etc?

ATO allows STP super amount to be greater than 9.5% of gross wage. Actual payment of super is outside of STP.
