That is a little harder to provide.  As Contour Flange is sketch based, we have no control over the resultant geometry.  Take the example where the user sketches arc at the start - what would be the expected geometry for this case?

The control of the material behaviour for contour flange is under the control of the sketch.

@Dave_Walker,

the situation you describe can be resolved to make an offset inside the edge used as path of the value indicated by the image I attach.

Other Parasolid CAD have inset option, then I think it's not impossible.
