Can you hide unused FlexNICs in Virtual Connect v4.10?

Ivan was looking for some help on unused VC FlexNICs:

I’m looking for some more information regarding the new feature in VC 4.10 to hide the unused flexnics.

Any ideas how this works?

Is it possible to enable the hide unused FlexNIC feature via the CLI?  So far, it does not seem to appear in the config when checked in the GUI.  Scripting this is a must.
