I'm guessing it's goal is to prevent a house from becoming a duplex/triplex, ( and part of it being rented out. )

It's already a duplex, of sorts, though family - MIL is living in a private, sectioned off part of the house, with a full kitchen, except for a stove/oven... I would have been tempted to leave a 30 1/4" gap in the counter/cabinets, place a planter in that space until it passed inspection, and then install a stove if I wished to for my family member. If I wanted to rent the lower level out later, that would be a different matter.
