from the logic, they should not be exclusive.
i have just replaced the one from blanking by
setterm -powerdown 5
on my machine, because i do not see any reason to make a screen work
and show black instead of shut down and use less power (on a laptop
anyway). your guess that they are exclusive to each other may be
right. i will add back the blanking one and see what happens.
