[Bldg-sim] Automatic Lighting Shutoff Mandatory Provision Question

Hello All,
I am confused on the mandatory provision which states that building 
larger than 5000 ft2 shall have automatic control device. Does it mean 
that mid-rise and high rise building cannot claim for credit in occupancy 
sensors shown in Table G3.2 because their GFA is more than 5000 ft2 and only 
small office can claim for this credit? I am sure I am not interpreting this 
section correct since from what I read, other modelers  are claiming for savings 
for buildings with more than 5000 ft2 area for occupancy sensors even if 
mandatory requirements states that this is required which means baseline 
building will also have occupancy sensors.

Can someone correct me on this? 
Thank you,
C. Jaigath
