The exception is when it's ambiguous:

That _expression_ could be interpreted as two statements or one (remove the line break and see). In that case Lua is kind enough to make an exception to the "ignore whitespace" rule and raise an error

I've always thought that Lua treats this chunk as absolutely correct way to write the following code:
x = (f(a or b)):c()
