How can geomeppy be used to modify e-plus reference building WWR?

I was attempting to use geomeppy's set_wwr on a medium office reference building, but I found that glazing also got applied to the plenums above each floor in addition to the occupiable zones. Is there a way to modify the function to only apply glazing to the occupiable zones (but still include plenum exterior wall area in the calculation for WWR) for models with built-out plenums?

My quick workaround was to calculate the WWR on occupiable zone walls that would result in the desired overall WWR, enter that value into the geomeppy function (instead of the desired overall WWR) and then delete the glazing generated on the plenums.
