1st off commercial wall framing doesnt use plates. they use track and steel stud, heavy gauge for exterior walls and light gauge for partitions/curtain walls

You COULD frame a commercial wall with wood studs, but it all has to be non combustible. That's why metal stud framing is usually used with wood studs (non com) only on rough door and window openings for nailing finish frames and trim to.

They still use wood commercially all the time.
But anyways, I have no idea what the op is asking anyways.

Most fast food places and light commercial are wood frame, there should be a nailing schedule for any commercial building though.

wood frame is extremely rare for light commercial here. do to fire codes.

if there is wood framing its because its in a very old building in most cases with no other spaces which need a fire stop

Ninjaframer is right on target. The Wood Councel pamphlets dca-3 and dca-4, I believe, describe using wood in structural applications.

Wood of sufficient size is actually safer than many steel structures when flame resistance timeframes are considered.

It's true, as a firefighter I've seen wood outlast light weight steel many times.
