Does VST3 have a way of identifying session vs preset state-recall?


A topic we have been discussing in the iPlug2 community is “how to store plug-in editor dimensions with a daw session but not have them recalled from presets”. It seems many plug-in developers store this info in their plug-in state but ignore the info when users interact with the in-plugin preset browser, however if the user stores presets via the host mechanisms this won’t work. Is there a way to do this in VST3?
