The question here concerns the solving path, where clearly the non-consecutive rule is predominant versus the sudoku rule.
This question is discussed in the "read me first" thread, too: viewtopic.php?f=33&t=1920#p14799

P.S. This puzzle has a special symmetry which can allow someone to solve it a bit faster, but it was not for this purpose that I posted this puzzle.
