Citations consist of numbers, and numbers are words. The algorithm for word count is fixed, but you can "find & replace" all numbers in brackets before you take a word count. Save the doc, disable "record changes" (if enabled) and use the "Find & Replace" dialogue, enable "Regular Expression" find and replace the pattern
with an empty string ("Replace All"). Of course, reload the document without saving it before.

What are examples, where citations should not be counted?
