I assume you are talking about the MAX.
From what I have read so far, there is no "compare" function between AOA's that would inhibit these system responses.
There is no compare function because the MCAS was shockingly designed with zero redundancy. The two sensors are independent for alternate use. Unlike In Airbus where there is triple redundancy and they automatically compared and single erring one is self detected. There also if two erring ones have common error they can reject the good one. In Max MCAS too much authority was invested without any redundancy.
