In searching, I found this unlocked thread:
https://privateerpressforums.com/showthread.php?100807-Ignoring-shield-wall-by-targetting-a-model-behind-someone&highlight=electroleap+point+origin

Is the point of origin for Electroleap the model that was initially hit by the attack that generated the Electroleap? The case in the other thread was specific to Shield Wall, and that's the only scenario I came up with. But it seems like it could be relevant elsewhere as well, so I'm framing it as a general question.

Considering the age of that thread, it's as good as an Infernal answer. And furthermore:


POINT OF ORIGIN paragraph 3, line 4
...
Similarly, when the lightning generated by Chain Lightning arcs to another model, the immediately previous model struck by the lightning is the origin of that damage.

Electro-leap is essentially Chain Lightning with only one leap, so the model initially hit is the point of origin.
