Based on the paragraph below, would you say maintain visual separation to a VFR aircraft told to follow a heavier type aircraft when either are conducting multiple approaches.

"visual separation/spacing"

I believe visual sep is for visual approaches and the spacing is meant for VFR aircraft.

.65 3-9-7b

3. Successive touch-and-go or stop-and-go
operations are conducted with any aircraft following
an aircraft in the pattern that requires wake turbulence
separation, or an aircraft departing the same runway
that requires wake turbulence separation in
accordance with subparagraphs a1, a2, a3, or a4
(except for super aircraft), provided the pilot is
maintaining visual separation/spacing behind the
preceding aircraft. Issue a wake turbulence
cautionary advisory and the position of the larger
aircraft.
NOTE−
Not authorized with a Super as the lead or departure
aircraft.
