Short of hacking the code, I know of none.  (Which is not quite "no".)

It's really hard for me to recommend anything but "switch to an ISP
that actually has some rudiment of a clue".  If you really really can't
switch, the only thing that comes to mind is to run your own nameserver
and tell it it's authoritative for the relevant reverse zone(s).
