Identifying externally provided services referenced by IATF16949

Does anyone see fire extinguisher inspection as an externally provided service which falls under IATF16949:2016 requirements?
Obviously not. If an external auditor is writing this up as a nonconformity against the IATF 16949 document, not only it should be appealed, but his/her competence as an IATF auditor should be challenged as well. Accepting this nonconformity would lead to a slippery slope...janitorial services, security services, parking painting services....the line must be drawn. If you can't make a correlation with product/service quality, it is outwith the scope of the QMS, thus, out of bounds.
