Exactly. The prohibition does not apply.
Let's pretend it's this:

It is illegal to wear raingear. This prohibition does not apply to:
(d) A person wearing certified raingear when it is raining out.


It doesn't mean you can wear any raingear when it's raining out, just certified raingear. In other words, the entire exception is listed in section (d). It doesn't say there is no rule when it's raining.

See the difference?

Let's try:

It's illegal to wear raingear or a hat. This prohibition does not apply to:
(d) A person wearing certified raingear when it is raining out.

So if you wear certified raingear when it's raining out you can wear a hat...

The "This prohibition" applies to the whole prohibition (as written) not just the raingear bit...

I could probably subsume this to a mathematical logicality...

I used to be bored, now I ride like this:
