comment How can there be net linear momentum in a static electromagnetic field (not propagating)?
Your answer tells me that the total momentum of the system is zero, because there is mechanical momentum to balance the field momentum, and then give details on the mechanical momentum. This is not what I was asking though. The issue is that the field has momentum, but is not propagating at all. Please focus on the field.

I mean static in the usual sense. static = not changing in time. Your example is not a static field, as a field spreading out is clearly changing in time.
