Yes, Block Field Updates in Admin » Field Management, but this applies to change from non-empty, regardless of original source.

There's no such concept in Marketo.

The only way to deprioritize webhook-based updates to existing data is to (a) pass the updates through an intermediate webhook that can compare current data to potential new data, and (b) keep a running log (in your own textarea field) of the last source of a given field.

What about options like update only if empty type logic? Does that exist?
