Does Runout Sensor Detect filament not moving??

Big problem isnt runouts - its Jamming. Where gear is grinding into filament but filament is not moving. Would this be detected by the runout sensor??

result leads to those terrible isolation tube clogs since the filament is sitting there not moving for hours

Our run-out sensor is an optical one. It only detects whether there has filament passing through the sensor so that the light will be blocked.
