In those, a go-around is not initiated by "clicking" a button but by pushing the thrust levers to the forward stop. This will always give full go-around thrust and enable the appropriate autopilot/flight director modes. The computers will never "ignore" the pilots commanding GA thrust, regardless of whether the airplane is in the air or on the ground.
