I have found sometimes the jockey pump is on generator, but most of the time it has not been. Prolonged power outage and a leaky system or check valve could set off the pump though.

Is there an actual Fl state, county, or city document that defines the actual legally required loads on a 701 panel for a high rise residential building? Or is this just determined which each individual building design?

The adopted Building Code dictates what is what.

For example Chapter 27 of this book typically handles it where emergency is Article 700 and Standby is 701. It will send you to 403.4.8 for High Rise.

A cautionary note from a Stanford Physics department lab.
Since some experimental apparatus can be damaged by an unplanned power loss, backed up circuit receptacles were provided for each lab area.
The only problem was that their use was not coordinated, resulting in all the sensitive equipment across several labs losing power at once when the circuit was overloaded.
