Taken from Mike Sinnett's publication:

Underscoring the difference between the speed-trim system on the 737 Next Generation (NG) and the MAX, Sinnett says: “Mechanically, on the NG there is a column cutoff switch that stops any automatic trim when the column is back to a certain spot. On the MAX, we still needed automatic trim when you got to that spot.
The bee in my bonnet about that rear column cut-off switch having been removed on the MAX, is it seems, still open to interpretation. The inference is there, but not the positive statement.
