/bin is specified to hold "essential" programs.
/sbin is its add-on for system administrators.
/usr/bin + /usr/sbin together hold nearly 4000 files on my system.

But are you aware that "standard utility" can be the start of a nice
dispute among the regulars of a computer users' mailing list ?
(Let's see what happens. No real persons or animals will be hurt.)
There can be no dispute over the meaning of "standard system
utilities". These are the ones which have a "Priority: standard"
field in the package description.

On my stretch:

   grep -B 1 "Priority: standard" /var/lib/dpkg/available

odd but that grep doesn't produce anything on my laptop. the file is a single UTF8 file...
