How can I completely turn off HLODs?

I am testing using HLODs for a project. For the, most part it has been great at increasing my performance overall but I was wondering if there is a way to completely disable the system? By completely, I mean not just using r.HLOD set to 0, but completly prevent built proxies from being loaded even in the background. From what I have seen the console command and unchecking “Enable Hierachial LODSystem” in the world settings just stops the system from being used. The memory cost for the HLOD proxies is still being incurred since they are still loaded in.
