If you have trenches under wire you can move from one trench to another without considering the wire. This is clear.
What happens if you wish to leave the trench and occupy the other terrain in the hex (which still has wire in it)? Are you under the wire? or on the wire?

I could not find anything that explicitly said you were under but that mostly makes sense but did I miss anything?

A unit exiting a trench is still in the same location and hence beneath the wire.

26.4 There is no additional cost for Infantry to enter a Wire Location beyond the normal COT of that Location. However, when entering a Wire Location (regardless of phase), they are placed on top of the Wire counter (even if disembarking from a vehicle) and must remain there until they expend sufficient additional MF to move beneath the Wire [EXC: Units returned to a Wire Location after attempted entry of a concealed enemy's Location; A12.15]. Infantry may move/rout beneath a Wire counter only during their MPh/RtPh (including the same MPh/RtPh they moved on top of it if able to do so), even if they remain in the same Location and only move/rout (Low Crawl) beneath the Wire counter.
