Ohh, breaking things to solve a puzzle? That would be an interesting part of the puzzle. I generally consider that in poor form, though. Now, if the statue has an oddly chipped sword in its hand, and that sword is a key, that's one thing.

Breaking the statue because a vital clue to solving the puzzle is inside would be pushing it. Breaking a doorknob off a false door and sticking it on the end of a pole as a counterbalance for a puzzle, though, is dicking with your players.

"not everything is part of the puzzle"
One time we were in an irl Escape Room. My friend asked me for my pocket knife. I handed it over and he proceeded to unscrew the vent from the wall.

(there was nothing inside)

I ran through an escape the room puzzle a few years ago. One of the items available was an oddly shaped hammer on the end of a long handle. This hammer was intended to be used to solve a key puzzle. Stick the long end of the hammer head in a hole to push a button. Then a lever puzzle. There's a switch, but no lever, hollow handle goes in the slot, as a makeshift switch. Finally, as a weight to get a scale to release the key.

One guy used the hammer to smash the window, then climbed out, walked around and unlocked the door. It was not the intended solution, and the people who owned the place were pissed at him. They gave us a sledgehammer, though. I can't really blame someone for thinking that a hammer would be used to smash something.
