What do you mean by that? Do you want to generate the models with python? Then you may consider modeling them in a more stable way not relying on edges or vertices, e.g. by starting with a sketch which contains the fillet itself.
No, I wan't not to generate models with python (BTW I have no skills about that), I would like to share a tutorial about sheet metal, but not about native FC model or cartesian models. I mean about imported step parts or part with complex geometry (far from cartesian shape).
This kind: https://forum.freecadweb.org/viewtopic.php?f=24&t=34593
In order to prepare such kind of part for unfolding I have my workflow. The end of this workflow concerns peripheral fillets. Of course I could stop the workflow to the previous step, namely the offset feature. But that would be pity. If I do this peripheral fillets should be added on the unfold sketch, IMHO it is not convenient.
(This limitation about peripheral fillets does not occure with traditional sheetmetal workflow, I mean by using sheetmetal WB features)

Regarding your last file, where last fillet is on the border of the shape, I don't see why you need to add this last fillet before unfolding...
Sorry my bad: see edit https://forum.freecadweb.org/viewtopic. ... 80#p303748
