Is it common for DevOps engineers to write code for user requirements?

After reading some articles about DevOps, I understand that DevOps engineers do write code. However, it’s a bit unclear to me about what kind of code a DevOps engineer write.

Assume that there are (very roughly) 2 categories of code:

  1. For system operation: like scripting for deployment, configuration of Puppet or Ansible, etc.
  2. For user requirement: e.g. allow user to upload avatar images, add an “export” button to download as .csv files.

I found that some DevOps engineers only do the first category, while some others do both.

My question: is it common for DevOps engineers to write code for user requirements?
