Yes, the opcode does exist in an already released kernel.

The DBus method which accesses this API is put behind the experimental
flag, therefore we expect they are flexible enough to support changes.
Previously, we already had a discussion in an email thread with the
title "Offload RSSI tracking to controller", and the outcome supports
this change.

Here is an excerpt of the discussion.

As mentioned, we are planning to offload the RSSI tracking to the controller as well, so there will be changes to the corresponding MGMT commands.

In the meantime, we are planning to change the existing MGMT commands of Adv monitoring to allow the offloading of RSSI tracking shortly. Here is a snippet of potential changes.
