Of course not.

If it was prodded, *the policy explicitly says* it can be unmarked for
deletion, or undeleted, if anyone objects.

If it was speedied (correctly or incorrectly) it can be recreated. If
what you end up with is still a deletion candidate, then it can be
deleted again on its own merits, not for being a recreation...

(I went three rounds over this with someone before - speedied in
error, then every recreation speedied "per earlier"...)
