I believe this exists, or at least something similar to it, and was
designed as a kind of "airplane mode" support for use with Orbot. We
trigger this now based on the Android OS radio/network state callbacks.

"DisableNetwork 0|1

When this option is set, we don’t listen for or accept any connections
other than controller connections, and we don’t make any outbound
connections. Controllers sometimes use this option to avoid using the
network until Tor is fully configured. (Default: 0)"
