Do NEC referenced code apply if not adopted by local AHJ?

A local AHJ has adopted NEC, IBC, IFC, but no other NFPA code.  NEC references other NFPA codes (NFPA 820, for example).  Does that mean a design professional must comply with all NFPA codes even if not expressly adopted by the AHJ?  (and to head of the obvious answer, the AHJ officer said no, but some design professionals are concerned with liability cause by the reference)
