COMMENTS
a(n) is the smallest k > 1 such that n^k == n (mod k) and p-1 does not divide k-1 for every prime p dividing k, see A121707.
We have A000790(n) < a(n) <= A316940(n) for n > 0.
It seems that the sequence is unbounded like A316940.
The term a(5) = 4495 = 5*29*31 is not semiprime.

EXAMPLE
a(6) = 35 since 6^35 == 6 (mod 35) and 35 = 5*7 is the smallest "anti-Carmichael number": 5-1 does not divide 7-1. We have gcd(35,2^35-2) = 1.

(PARI) isac(n) = {my(f = factor(n)[, 1]); for (i=1, #f, if (((n-1) % (f[i]-1)) == 0, return (0)); ); return (1); }
isok(n, k) = {if (Mod(n, k)^k != Mod(n, k), return (0)); return (isac(k)); }
a(n) = {my(k=2); while (!isok(n, k), k++); return (k); } \\ Michel Marcus, Oct 27 2018
