The clause matrix is correct by indicating that a clause such the example you provided (52.242-13) is not required for commercial item acquisitions. We also know this from the guidance at FAR 12.301(d): "Notwithstanding prescriptions contained elsewhere in the FAR, when acquiring commercial products or commercial services, contracting officers shall be required to use only those provisions and clauses prescribed in this part." There are many instances of clause prescriptions in various FAR parts that don't specifically exempt commercial item acquisitions, but 12.301(d) provides us with that direction.
