Is there a way to specify the method used during health checks, such as
using "HEAD" instead of "GET"?

(current healthcheck pasted below)

probe healthcheck {
    .url = "/api/system/check/";
    .interval = 2s;
    .timeout = 0.3s;
    .window = 1;
    .threshold = 1;
    .initial = 0;
    .expected_response = 200;
