One question: Is it possible to disable python code execution in spreadsheets if i get files from untrusted sources ?

I would like an option to not open scripted/spreadsheet files, so if I happen to click on one from a user it won't open.

What do you mean by "scripted/spreadsheet files"? And what does it have to do with BOM?
They're concerned with security implications (malware). Consider a feature like this as seen in Microsoft Excel:
IIRC these warnings are based on the location/origin of the file. Doesn't seem worth it to me to support such things, though maybe there is some python gizmo (e.g. sandboxing) which will safely handle such risks.
Spreadsheets in the cloud (Google Sheets & Microsoft equivalent) don't have access to the local file system but have permissions based access to other stuff in the cloud (per popup queries per their cloud API). All this is beyond my head/interest so don't take what I say as irrefutable truth.
