Seems that Inyo National Forest impose the same limit on group size for (non-permit) day hikes as for overnight trips:
"Groups cannot be larger than 15 people (includes day use)."

This is the general trend with national forests when I have asked about day group limits.
Interesting that the national parks are less stringent on day use of trails.
