If you trust a VPN operator, you trust the VPN operator. What the rest of your message is asking is "can I partially trust the VPN operator to do X but not Y, and have all that be explicit?".

25+ years of IETF security experience would say either "no" or "yes, but in such a convoluted way that no one will actually understand it and now you've just slathered on complicated code that makes things worse".

Once you are inside a network (the N in VPN), it's "my network, my policy" all over again.
