Is there a way to Exclude parts from Variant manager but have them show up in the schematic and when they are printed in a PDF? This would be like the  We have over 10k variants that have say "test points" unplaced so that they don't transfer to BOMs in DC. We have found how to take care of this with the Partlister_exclude property in parts. Although this is good we still have to convert all these BOMs to Dx and if we can exclude parts from the Variant Manager then we don't have to go into each and every BOM and change this to be placed. We want to prevent human error by not changing all of these to be placed. One thing about most of these components is that they need to be forward annotated to the board.
