With nrexcl = 3 it excludes neighbours 3 bonds away, in this case your (ii)
But an extra LJ and electrostatic interactions, is added between 1-4 pairs,
if gen-pair is yes for the force field.
These interactions are scaled by their respective fudge factor.
For gromos ff, the gen-pair is no. Thus there are no extra LJ or
electrostatics. 1-4 pair contributes to the potential energy
only through dihedrals.
