These two rules do not have the same status in non-refereed matches as a moment's reflection would tell you, and here is one national association's opinion:


Foot faults may only be called by an official standing on court or by a chair umpire. Players may be
requested to correct their foot faulting problem by a Referee or Court Supervisor, who will require
the player to make an effort during the match to rectify the problem. The receiver may not call a
foot fault against the server.
