As I understand it, latches are required on all doors in fire separations under 2.2.3.2.(1) Closures in fire separations shall be maintained to ensure that they are operable at all times by (c) making necessary adjustments and repairs to door hardware and accessories to ensure proper closing and latching.

With the closure already being there, it becomes a Pt2 issue, not 9.5 if it was removed. If there never was a latch to begin with, then it’s the 9.5.2.8 that applies.
