Not applicable to this type during normal line operations.
If at all it will be well outside the certified flight envelope.

Critical point, but if MCAS puts you outside the envelope does this stall render it non-correctable

Boeing has long designed their stabilizers to have a huge stall margin with 3 inch ice shapes, which is how they can certificate without ice protection. To my knowledge, there are no tailplane stall events in any legacy Boeing airplane...the MD80/DC-9 does have a history of tailplane stall behaviors with flaps 40 in icjng (hence the QRH procedure for a flaps 28 landing if the ice protection has failed).

Tailplane stall nearly always requires full flap extension. MCAS is not operative with flaps extended.
