Clarification of HVLS Fans in Multifamily Construction

I am curious as to a clarification on NFPA 13 in regards to HVLS fans. On a multifamily construction project that is fully sprinkled, if the ceiling fans in the units are 72" in diameter and have rpms between 30-70 are they required to be monitored by the fire alarm system for shutdown? Per the definition of a HVLS it is a fan approximately 6'-24' with approximate rotational speed of 30-70 rpm. Since we seem to be walking the line of residential and commercial I was wondering if someone would have a clarification on this. Thanks
