yes, indeed molpro ignores NOCHECK and many other options during
geometry optimization. This has a very sound base: if your energy
is not converged, then geometry optimization most probably will fail,
as it may contain artificial jumps etc, and in case of analytic gradients
(not implemented for CCSD(T) though) it relies on the fact that the WFs
are fully convergent. There is no way to override this, and it would be not
a good idea anyway. So, instead you should understand the reasons of
bad convergence looking at your log file. If the reason is the too big jump
in geometry, you should play with optg step parameters, trust ratio etc etc.
If the reason is the bad convergence of CCSD(T) itself, close to optimal
geometry, this may indicate the multi-reference character and so
CCSD(T) is not adequate. Maybe, tightening the integral thresholds,
change of the basis set, etc, could help.
