Sora Front Shifter - Triple - Trimming?

Does anybody know if the Sora front derailleur shifter for a triple can be trimmed?

Or is it basically 3 positions for the front derailleur (triple) and no trimming can be done?

Working on a 2006 Specialized Dolce that has Tiagra and Sora parts. It seems that I can only shift the front derailleur to 3 positions and cannot do any trimming.

I had SORA Brifters of this era and they did not have a trim function.

However on that bike (since sold) I had cable stop that included a lever and indents that allowed trimming.
