Nikon Z - magnification in the eyepiece

I don’t have one of these cameras yet and am afraid I’m about to ask an incredibly stupid question. Out of the 2 cameras the Z6 is the more likely one for me on price, but I’m interested in the possibility of also shooting with a cropped view for nature since I couldn’t afford both Z6 and, say, D500.

I understand that the DX view would fill the viewfinder, which is great, but the picture is cropped by 1.5 to 10mp permanently so no real choices remain for cropping pp, as FX would give. Also, I understand there is a magnification tool to assist with manual focussing. 
My question is would it be possible when shooting in an autofocus mode, to have a DX view in the viewfinder whilst taking the shot FF, thus leaving more room for selective cropping later. The best of both worlds?

I have a bad feeling about this, but hey ho...
