Smoke Detectors in Public Restrooms

Is there any requirement in NFPA 72 that indicate smoke detectors can be exempted in public restrooms (no shower or tub) under certain floor area size in buildings requiring total (complete) coverage, for example, in high-rise office buildings? I saw there are frequently no smoke detectors in the public restrooms and only has notification appliance in buildings that should be a total (complete) coverage fire detection and alarm system. So I am curious to see where I can find this type of exemption in the NFPA 72, NFPA 101 or building code.
