Two different things.

The aircraft already delivered will, by definition, have been issued with C of As, albeit they can't currently fly because there's an AD grounding the type.

Undelivered aircraft, on the other hand, won't be able to fly even after the grounding of the type is lifted, until they get a C of A.

Obviously both groups will be subject to any AD issued to require implementation of post-MCAS mods, but that's a different issue.
