Linear Track Light Live End Power Feed

Hi guys, I'm looking to install track lighting and would like to understand the difference between these two live end feed options:

Option 1
Option 2

In my case I have a power outlet (switch controlled) near one of the ends so for the sake of simplicity I want to attach a basic power chord/plug to the power feed end. My guess is option 1 is what I need because of the side knockout is where I'd insert my chord through. Option 2 seems more for in-wall/junction box type setups because there is an accompanying wall plate/cover.

Post a pic so we can see what you have in the ceiling,you maybe able to remove the outlet and install an adapter plate and an end feed simular to this,could be a better choice than a cord

Normally track lights are hard wired. Does anything in the instructions say a cord set is permitted? Code says you must follow the manufacturers instructions.
