Here's my read based on taking the rules literally:

*D03 – Equipment* – “Equipment” is everything *you* bring to a Match for
Mission-related activity.

*D09 – Penalties* – A “Penalty” is a deduction from your final score due to
a specific action that is allowed but discouraged. Penalty values are found
in the Missions. There are two types of Penalty:

● Interruption Penalty – Caused by you Interrupting the Robot while it’s
not completely in Safety.

● Junk Penalty – Caused…

• immediately – by each piece of *equipment *the Robot strands partly in
Safety.

• at the end of the Match – by each piece of equipment still stranded
completely outside Safety.


So, if a junk penalty is only caused by stranded equipment, and equipment
is the stuff that you bring to the match, then it stands to reason that the
blue and yellow bars (which are not equipment by the definition) would not
cause a junk penalty.
