I agree but the code does not say it and this leaves room for arguement.

My interpretation about the special load combinations is the following:

- Whenever the AISC Seismic provisions requires the use of the special load
combinations (4-1) and (4-2), those combinations needs to be changed to the
special load combinations presented in the IBC section 1605.4, specifically
(Formula 16-19) and (Formula 16-20).
