Could well be - it's a dim and distant memory, but I was distinctly told that the maximum attitudes were computed and held at the limit before transmission to the flight surfaces rather than the other way round (which makes sense as it's a far less process bandwidth-intensive way of doing it).

CONF might be right and the THS might be an exception (I still haven't got to the bottom of the sim behaviour), but I do know that the general design was to hold attitude with all flight surfaces available rather than put a hard limit on the flight surfaces themselves.
