How to convert a BCV device to standard TDEV?

we have devices which are marked as bcv+tdev but there is never a pair established. these BCVs are not used like a standard tdev and mounted directly on the host. We would like to remove the bcv flag from those device. these are currently in active masking view. is there any way to preserve data and just remove the bcv flag from these device?

flags assigned to devices never impact the actual host data.

And will removing that flag is an online process? While luns are in masking view?
