No. This would would be a nice addition to granular permissions.

No. I think in this case the assumption is that if the patron has
presented a book for checkout, they are entitled to have it. In the
public library setting (where I work), this usually happens when an
item has been returned to the shelf without having been checked in.

I don't find this to be the case. Can you describe in detail the steps
you take to reproduce the problem?
