Thank you for your answer.

I forgot to mention that it was precisely my first attempt to solve
that issue, but it does not work in my case.
I have reduced the issue in the testcase below:
$ cat jamroot
import feature : feature ;
feature sanitize : off address thread : composite propagated link-incompatible ;
feature.compose <sanitize>thread : <cxxflags>-fsanitize=thread
feature.compose <sanitize>address : <cxxflags>-fsanitize=address
: default-build debug
$ b2 -an sanitize=thread produced the following output on linux x86_64
b2 toolset=gcc -an sanitize=thread
