Par is irrelevant in this situation. The lowest score (gross or net, depends on the competition) wins the hole. In your example, the hole is halved (tied).
the holie tied ? surely the mans gross 4 beats the ladies net 5 in matchplay ?

If the male has scored a gross 4 without a shot on a par 4, then does the female's net 5 on the hole as a par 5 not lead to a halved hole?
not in matchplay .par is irrelevant (unless the competion is using say stableford points on a hole as determiant of who wins the hole - a format I have never seen but apparently exists)

It would be in the handicapping Rules somewhere, but some common sense and logic can lead to the answer.
I think it’s not in the rules because there’s no reason a player, in a singles match, wouldn’t use the SI of the tee they are playing! It would creat a disadvantage if you didn’t allow a player to receive their shots on their hardest holes!

This is just one of many considerations when allocating SIs.
