Well, since NFPA 499 is for dusts, I don't think too many people would try to apply it to diesel anyway. Then again, maybe you would; you tried to apply gas and liquid concepts to dusts on another thread (post #9)So who is?
NFPA 499 among others never once uses phrases like “qualified”.
NEC only puts the purview outside THAT Code just as generation, transmission, and distribution fall under NESC.
NFPA 499 or the fuel gas Code or the burner codes don’t make that determination.
The responsibility for having proper documentation is always with the owner/operator. Who is qualified to create it may be up to debate.
BTW saying, "Oh, Oh, OH, it's diesel so it doesn't need to be classified.", just means you may have overlooked other relevant criteria, which is why we shouldn't try to do classifying on this forum. Only a person knowledgeable of the full installation should.
