I think the path to solve this trouble is making RDB$FILES the target to
look for secondary files.
So, a simple update can do the work. And there no need to change
the ODS, this can remain as it is, since it's only a behavior change on
the server.
I think this will be simpler than going hunting high and low on the header pages .
