Delayed Egress from Dormitory

I have a situation in which a dormitory building is equipped with a delayed (15 seconds) exit door.  I was of the opinion that this ok to do provided that the delayed egress components were connected to the fire alarm system and would automatically release during a fire alarm activation.  Apparently this means of egress is not connected to the fire alarm so upon fire alarm activation and in case of emergency the 15 seconds is still required in order to evacuate the building.  This seems out of compliance to me.  Thoughts??
