That's more quantum mechanics since combustion is (almost?) exclusively the breaking and reforming of covalent bonds and the release of heat due to the difference in
electron bond energies
, while nuclear reactions are exclusive the disruption of the strong force and the release of heat due to the difference in
nucleon binding energy
Of course what you say is true, but how is the connection to relativity any different? This was the original question.
