No Defeature API?

Although there is a pre-existing thread on this, I wanted to make a new one considering the previous was posted all the way back in 2011 ( https://forum.solidworks.com/message/221866?q=Defeature APi ).

 

After referencing the API documentation, I cannot find any information on an included API to access the "Tools>Defeature" module (not talking about the "SaveDeFeaturedFile()" command that bakes in build features of a part).

 

I'm extremely interested in batch simplification of dumb imported solid bodies into Solidworks. The defeature tool in Sldworks is exactly what I'm looking for, but without API access, it's useless to me. Does anyone here know if it's at all possible to access the Defeature tool via the API (primarily used for an automated hole removal batch operation across many different part documents)?

 

I've searched online and in the API documentation without any success.

 

Thank you.
