Is this saying that persons who is in the U.S armed even if they are LPR the banned doesnt go for them

If the F2A was petitioned by an LPR in the US Armed Forces, then a waiver would apply.

I believe it is not a waiver, in other words there is no form/fee, the appropriate proof for the exception just needs to be presented to the embassy.

The petition doesnt start yet he needed to know if he would be exempted like how hes in the armed force as a LPR

 

You mean he has not submitted the petition yet?  There is no ban for filing the petition.

So it would be best if he wait onl the citizenship then 

Why? If he becomes a citizen while waiting then you can upgrade the petition. There is zero benefit to waiting.
