Fully automatic markers work by cycling the bolt automatically while you are holding the trigger down. The RT can mimic this easily, but the trigger still moves with each shot, so you TECHNICALLY are pulling the trigger with each ball fired.
NASA and the Americans spent millions of dollars and hundreds of hours to develop a pen that would write in space.....The Russians used a pencil.

If you do not have to relieve finger pressure to continue to fire, it is a fully automatic marker. As I said, there are many military machine guns (you know, fully automatic) that use exactly the same method. We are not even into semantics here, if the marksman has only to hold down the trigger to obtain continuous firing it makes no difference how the "gun" mechanism accomplishes that continuous fire. Does not holding the trigger down on an R/T equipped maker cause the bolt to continuous cycle? Firearms that fire with a very similar mechanism, reset-the-trigger-while-maintaining-finger-pressure, ar e still classified as automatic weapons by the BATF. Take it from a retired gun-shop owner and competitive shooter, your argument would not keep you out of jail if you owned one of those trigger reset "machine" guns without the proper BATF paperwork.
