SMA Connector GND Pin Thermal Relief

Is there a way to specify that a particular pad is not to have thermal relief, and instead is around its entire edge to be contact with a zone fill?

Should the footprint for an edge launch SMA connector’s ground pins have thermal relief on them? The frequency is to be about 3 GHz. My concern is excessive disruptions to the characteristic impedance.

Examples of such connectors:

At least in 6.00 I am right clicking on the pad in question.
