Disabling manual focus ring for specific lenses

After accidentally touching the focus ring too many times in the dark while shooting astrophotography and ruining 30+ minute exposures, I decided to disable the focus ring on my Z7 camera. Surprisingly, when I switch my lenses to manual focus using the switch on the lens, I can use the ring again. This setup is perfect as it prevents accidental focus changes unless I deliberately engage manual focus.

However, today while using my 24-200 lens, I realized it doesn't have a manual focus switch. This isn't a major issue, but it means I now have to navigate through menus to use manual focus with this specific lens.

My question is: Is there a way to apply this setting only to my S lenses, which have the manual focus switch? Or is this another reason to upgrade my 24-200 lens to a 24-120? I already made a thread about moving from a 24-200 to 24-120 so no need to get in the weeds regarding the two lenses.
