Add a field invariant to sub-sheet

I use some tools for BOM management like KiCost and InteractiveHtmlBom and both support variants.
The symbol’s fields are common between the hierarchical sheet, being the only exception the reference field.

Is it possible to add a field variant to hierarchical sheet that behaves like the reference field? That is, I would like to have the same symbol on multiple copies of the hierarchical sheet with different variant field.

Not in v5.1. This will be possible in v6 using hierarchical sheet’s property fields and text variables. In New string replacement options for kicad assets you can see how it will be done.

EDIT: Oops, you can’t “see” unless you open the project with nightly builds.
