I agree it's literal, so not incompatible with the supposed rule. I think it's stretching things to say it follows it though, because we don't even know whether the author had ever heard of any such rule, let alone whether he had adopted it. It follows it only in the sense that it follows the rule "every sentence must end in a word beginning with f"- we have to look beyond this one sentence to see whether there is any support for the existence of such a rule in the output of this one author, or in the English language generally.
