Arriving T4, leaving T4S - Passport Control in both?

We will be returning from Alicante Spain to the US and are not sure about passport control in Barajas. We think we will arrive (Iberia) at T4 and depart for the US (AA) from T4S. Do we have to go through passport control at T4 and then go to T4S? or can we go to T4S and go through passport control there?

When departing MAD T4S for the United States, passport exit control is in T4S.

All American Airlines flights departing T4S for the United States depart from the zone of the terminal that is accessible only by passing through passport controls.

One word of warning. Passing through the EU controls isnt the big issue. Its the massive amount of time needed to get to the S gates. 25 minutes MINIMUM if you dont have wait for multiple trains.
