Disable just one port from a XHC0 PRT group?

Hi, I'd like to disable the AURA LED Controller but it's hardwired onto an USB 3.2 controller I can't afford to lose. Is there a way to only disable the one port?

It's port XHC0 (PRT6) with Location ID 0x61600000. The same XHC0 with Location ID 0x60600000 is an actual USB 3.2 port I'd like to keep. I looked into usbports.kext but that only allows me to disable the whole PRT6 group.

Thanks!

By group you mean there is an internal USB Hub? If so you can try https://github.com/mvp/uhubctl to check if it supports PPPS (per port power switching)
Or if you're using an SSDT-XHC to rename the controller you could try removing that particular port there.
