This is wrong. First, in 10.1 there is a way to detect whether the value
was set by a user. I_S.SYSTEM_VARIABLES can show that.

But even if you'd detected that, it won't help you do distinguish

  mysqld --wsrep-sync-wait=1 --wsrep-causal-reads=0
  mysqld --wsrep-sync-wait=0 --wsrep-causal-reads=1

The only correct solution is to handle this in the mysqld_get_one_option
switch, updating the dependent option when one of these two is set.
