Item number 2 does not say "You will only encounter this when the autopilot is engaged" Or anything that could reasonably construed as such. What it *does* say, is "Autopilot (If engaged)". The key word there is *if*. That allows for 2 possible cases: autopilot is engaged, or, autopilot is not engaged. MCAS would fall into the latter case.

I'm not necessarily taking the Boeing's side here, but you're going to have to come up with something a little better than that to counter the claim that the Runaway Trim procedure covers erroneous MCAS activation.
