Miller et al[2]. did it wrong and John Doe, too[2].

I use the "move-punctuation" refer command so that references at sentence ends are moved before the point. in the above example the same, of course, happens at the abbreviation and it's not desired there.

question: is there a way to enforce individually whether the reference is moved or not (i.e. can one overrule the 'move-punctuation' command on a per-reference basis)?

 \&  is a non-printing, zero-width character.

yes, that does the trick (should have thought of set solution myself, shame on me). thank you very much
