From FAA Order 8900.1...

A. Airworthiness Certification. Upon fulfillment of all requirements of part 133, an applicant is eligible for a rotorcraft external‑load operator certificate. This certificate becomes a current and valid airworthiness certificate for each normal or transport category rotorcraft listed in a letter accompanying the certificate. Including incidental operations, this applies only when the rotorcraft is operated under part 133. The Rotorcraft External‑Load Operating Certificate and List of Approved Rotorcraft must be carried aboard the rotorcraft.
B. Restricted Category Rotorcraft. Rotorcraft that are certificated in the restricted category for the special purpose of external‑load operations under 14 CFR part 21, 21.25(b)(7), are issued restricted category airworthiness certificates for the purpose of conducting external‑load operations. Therefore, these aircraft do not need to be listed on the List of Approved Rotorcraft that accompanies the Rotorcraft External‑Load Operator Certificate. The Restricted Category Airworthiness Certificate must be carried aboard the restricted category rotorcraft.

I'm not sure I understand what you are trying to state. Can you elaborate?

Aircraft certificated in the Restricted category don't have to be listed, because they can't do anything else, such as carry passengers. Aircraft certificated in the Normal category must be listed, because they can carry passengers (Part 135) in addition to doing external loads.
