How to clear MCZF flag?

I want to clear MCZF flag in ISR,just like here:

#pragma TRAP_PROC
          ECT_MCFLG_MCZF = 1;//The first way to clear MCZF flag.
          // ECT_MCFLG &= 0x80;  //The second way to clear MCZF flag.

          //ECT_MCCNT = 0x30;//The third way to clear MCZF flag.

          ECT_MCCTL = 0x00;
I find that the first and the second can not clear MCZF flag,but only the third way can clear MCZF flag.

According to the datasheet,

"The flag indicates when interrupt conditions have occurred. The flag can be cleared via the normal flag clearing
mechanism (writing a one to the flag) or via the fast flag clearing mechanism (Reference TFFCA bit in
Section, “Timer System Control Register 1 (TSCR1)”).",this is to say we can clear it by  ECT_MCFLG_MCZF = 1;

I am  puzzled here,how to understand it?
