        Description="Content type used for Events business object">
        <FieldRef ID="{2C665F80-57EA-4632-9CB3-BF85F4DEA4BA}" />

While technically this should work, as you're finding it's a nightmare trying to find where there's an error in the XML since it's a black box. This is why you've seen so little effort invested in this space in years from Microsoft & rather, investments in REST & site designs/scripts.

In fact, MSFT was torn on even supporting this in SPFx. The guidance to provision assets is that you should use the SharePoint REST API or the site designs/site scripts for creating resources.
