In a commercial kitchen with a gas pizza oven (electronic spark ignition) with an integral exhaust hood, does the cord and plug connection for the control power and igniter need to be shunt tripped with the Ansul system.

I seam to remember the mechanical code reading that only sources of heat need to be shunted.

Different municipalities have different requirements, but for every Ansul system I've done, all electric under the hood has to shut down once the system is engaged.

Lights that are under the hood are allowed to stay on as long as they are in explosion proof lampholders.
