Can Intune manage macOS updates via a policy?

Hello Experts,
hope you are doing well.

Is it possible to restrict macOS devices from updating through an Intune policy?
Our Mac's are enrolled either via the Apple Business Manager or via the Intune company portal App.

Sometimes new macOS versions introduce new bugs or compatibility issues so we would like to restrict the devices going immediately to the latest one.

As per this document no macOS update restriction feature is listed:

So, we'd like to get a confirmation if it is possible to restrict macOS updates via Intune or manage them in any way, shape or form?

    Intune now is has the options to manage updates, but it is still not possible to set deadlines or minimum versions across the update settings. We use Intone Update settings along with Nudge to get best results. Nudge has a nagging option an that works best, user gets reminders every few days and when the deadline has passed it wil start to be annoying up to the level that the user will go and perform the updates....
