As an engineering consultant I've worked across a good scattering of the continental US. Occasionally I find jurisdictions who do not allow a "performance-specification" set of documents, but rather require that the fire sprinkler system be entirely laid out and hydraulically calculated with the building permit submittal.
Right now I'm aware of some areas in Florida and New York City as being two that have stood out as having this requirement.
In your experience is this common? What other jurisdictions do you know of require "full-design"?
