It certainly is an unusual form of English. It's saying "If both devices
have <x>", i.e. the condition <x> needs to be fulfilled by both devices
for the statement to be true. In this case the condition is "not set the
MITM option", i.e. both devices need to fulfill the condition "not set
the MITM option". Doesn't that then mean that it's not enough for one
device to not set the MITM flag, but both devices need to have it unset
for just-works to take place?
