How to set filemode=false on GitLab.com

Is there a way to set fielmode directly on GitLab.com?

The problem is if I clone a new repo from GL filemode is set to true, which is anonying. Locally I can set/change this is no problem. I’m just wondering about setting it somewhere on GL such that the web UI would never show filemode changes as changes and such that if I cloned a repo it’d come down with filemode=false (maybe I’m wrong in thinking this is inherited in a clone?)
