Box Plot outliers at Percentile Level rather than 1.5 x IQR

With ModifyBoxPlot, one can adjust the length of the whiskers in a boxplot quite easily, including: Min and Max Data, Inner Fences, One standard deviation, 9th and 91st percentiles, 2nd and 98th percentiles...
However, there does not seem to be an option to change the cutoff value for outliers accordingly. If 2nd and 98th percentiles are chosen as the whisker method, the whiskers overlap the outliers, and with 9th and 91st percentiles, there is a large gap between outliers and whiskers (see attached figures). Outliers being > or < 1.5*IQR seem to be hard-coded.
Seeing that the length of the whiskers can be modified to reflect percentiles, it would be great to also have that same option for the outliers.
