Can i use water mist fire suppression system for kitchen hood?

According to NFPA 96:2017 Clause 10.2.6 (5) it is allowed to use fire suppression system according to NFPA 750.

But Clause 4.1.1.3 of NFPA 750:2015

                  Water mist system shall not be used to direct application of liquid gases at cryogenic temperatures (such as                   natural gas), which boil violently when heated by water.

Is it OK to use water mist fire suppression system for kitchen hood which uses LP Gas?
