It's unclear to me what you mean here.
If you mean geometries A and B are disjoint but with possible intersection of
their boundaries, then it is OGC touches()

I'm a GIS boy, so forgive me if I'm biased, but it is easier for me to
speak my language.
I sense you mean this (note, it is not OGC contains, but a distinct refinement):

Do we agree?
