I don't see any qualitative difference between a solenoid and a
screw-jack. They each can be "turned on" and "turned off" - it just
requires a different action on the part of the operator.
But still... what, again, is the point of a force being "stoppable" or
"controllable" or "permanent" or "not permanent". Who cares? A force is a
force, and its effect on a system is the same regardless of which adjective
you wish to use to describe its "stoppability". It's a meaningless

If I apply a force to an object with an electric solenoid actuator,
switching it off removes the force that it applies, does it not? I stop
that force with a switch.
If I apply a force with a screw-jack, then that force is not controllable
or 'stoppable' but may instead be permanent in this context.
