Protection of Fire Pump Feeder Circuits

Section 695.6(A)(2) of the 2017 NEC requires conductors that connect "directly" to an on-site standby generator to comply with all of the following: (a) Independent Routing, (b) Associated Fire Pump Loads (c) Protection from Potential Damage, (d) Inside of a Building. Does that mean that feeder conductors from an on-site generator protected in accordance with 695.4(B)(2)(2) do not have to comply with any of those provisions? The conductors do not connect "directly" to the generator.
