blockchain – Is there any approach to activate full ‘leech’ mode?


As I understand, bitcoin basically represents a situation where nodes are expected to (and do) serve other nodes in the network, information that represents the money of all transactions in that network. That is, that regardless of whether nodes(full/light non spv nodes) initiate the connection, recent blocks/transactions/etc are sent by those nodes to other nodes on the network, and that they have unequivocally no choice but to actively participate in the relaying of that information(regardless of content/intent/purpose/etc) to those other nodes. Is there really no way to make a light node(pruned) consistently passive, that is, not send any information relating to the data(possibly also headers) in each block to nodes that request it?(other than some relay bit that seems to be for spv specifically?)
