(1) the term “newly appointed employee” means an individual who is first appointed—

(B) as an employee of the Federal Government following a break in service of at least 90 days after that individual’s last period of Federal employment, other than—
employment as a law clerk trainee;
employment under a short-term temporary appointing authority while a student during periods of vacation from the educational institution at which the student is enrolled;
employment under a provisional appointment if the new appointment is permanent and immediately follows the provisional appointment; or
(2) the term “period of qualified non-Federal service” means any period of service performed by an individual that—
