electric field- forces in NAMD source code

Hello all NAMD users
I have a question about the electric field in NAMD source code. We know
that force is split into long-range electrostatics ("slow"), short-range
non-bonded ("nbond"), and bonded terms ("normal"), due to support for
multiple time stepping. In ComputeEfield.C file in source code (Applying
electric field in code), only there is "normal" part of force. As below;

Force *forces = r->f[Results::normal];

This means that, the electric field only affect this part of force?! or
maybe I could not understand fully the code...
I am interested in any help and suggestion...
Thank you for your time and consideration.
Best
Kosar
