NFPA 101 Section  Does Double Egress Doors apply to all Corridor Doors?  What about (2) Hoiur Fire Walls?

I failed 100% inspection from State Fire Marshall because he stated that fire doors in a (2) hour fire-rated corridor wall have to swing in opposite directions.  Is this correct on all corridor doors or just smoke barrier walls?  What about (2) Hour Fire Separation Walls?  Furthermore, is there any way around this requirement - double egress doors & frame are quite expensive.  Thanks in advance for any assistance.
