Unfortunately, no. Several of us have been asking for that feature
for a long time but alas, it hasn't happened. My request, and what
I'm going to put in my private version, is to allow a playlist to
contain the name of a config file. If this file name is valid it is
executed, otherwise ignored. After execution, play resumes. More
than one config could be referenced in a playlist so, for instance,
you might want to play one album sequentially and shuffle another.

That would solve your problem but unfortunately, I have no idea when
or if that feature might make it into the official code.
