No. There used to be a model available called the F-11 that had a
setting to disable VFO/MR switching so the user couldn't switch to VFO
mode. The UV-82C and UV-82HP (sold by BaofengTech) have this ability.

The best you can do is to disable the VFO by swapping the upper and
lower band limits. It doesn't keep the user from going to VFO mode but
it keeps the user from using the radio in VFO mode.
