Bug Description

It can be selected only two of three ways, a window to receive the focus by moving the mouse.

System -> Preferences -> Windows
Window 'Window Preferences' -> Tab 'Behaviour'

Only two option can be selected, either one marked (sloppy) 'Select windows when the mouse moves over them' or not (click).

If 'Select windows when the mouse moves over them' was marked, the window closed and opened again, the marking is no longer available.

In the 'dconf Editor' under 'org.mate.Marco.general focus-mode mouse' but allows selection of three ways: click, sloppy or mouse

I've raised this issue upstream - https://github.com/mate-desktop/marco/issues/140

I would consider it a feature request to expose all 3 window focus mode via the UI because, as you've explained, it is possible to configure all three focus modes via dconf-editor.

Thanks for the report to GitHub mate-desktop/marco

The error I only noticed because I like the third option (mouse) use, so I set it like this:
~$ gsettings set org.mate.Marco.general focus-mode mouse
