C-h k and then a wheel click does nothing.  The "Describe key" prompt in
the mode line does not change.

On the screen, a "circle with up and down arrows" appears.  This is
evidently the Windows 7 feature that permits scrolling using the mouse.

Does it help to set w32-swap-mouse-buttons non-nil?

No. I think the issue is that Windows is catching the wheel click event before it gets to the application.

Left button is assigned to Context Menu, which maps to emacs mouse-1. Right button is Primary Mouse Button, mapping to emacs mouse-3.

The mouse properties dialog lets me assign the wheel to many things: recycle bin, maximize, C-c, escape, Fn keys, etc., but none of them maps to the emacs mouse-2 event.

FWIW, my work around is to assign the wheel click to F3, then assign F3 to my desired mouse-2 behavior - yank.
