The code also states (this is from memory) "or other approved" connection.
The Simpson approvals don't seem to require any contact with reinforcing
steel. (If I am wrong please let me know!) If this is indeed the case, then
the approval would allow embedment without specific hooking of the anchor
around the rebar.

1997 UBC 1632.2 has specific provisions for using expansion anchors and
chemical anchors at seismic connections, so their use is permitted. I was at
a seminar recently where this was discussed, and the interpretation was that
the wall anchors just need to go into the wall enough so the stress cone
engages reinforcement at the top of the wall.
