the Gff3TabixAdapter has to "redispatch" if it fetches a region and features it finds inside that region extend outside the region we requested. you can disable this for certain feature types to avoid fetching e.g. the entire chromosome

dontRedispatch: {
type: 'stringArray',
defaultValue: ['chromosome', 'region'],
