if [ $mkfs_status -ne 0 -a ! -z "$extra_mkfs_options" ]; then
echo -n "** mkfs failed with extra mkfs options "
echo "added to \"$MKFS_OPTIONS\" by test $seq **"
echo -n "** attempting to mkfs using only test $seq "

So, it will drop the MKFS_OPTIONS and just use the test specific
options if there is a conflict/failure.

That's effectively what it already does automatically.... :)
