I always put the occupancy sensor as the first switch in a bank for the general lighting.

Inspector now wants all switch legs on occupancy sensors.

Did I miss a code change?

This was not my job I was not there for inspection, and I don't have my code book with me.

Not real sure what your question is, but I generally feed to the occ sensor or powerpack and then hit the switch. That way if you have multiple switch legs you only need one powerpack. If you are talking about the type that fit in a switch box, the range on those things pretty much dictates one "zone" anyway.
