That's actually a fairly common practice in dedicated suppressed guns.
Forgotten Weapons has a video of a newer model/ prototype that let's you open or close the holes for sonic or sub- sonic ammo.
I don't recall the maker or I would link the vid.

I never heard of one you can close the holes in the barrel on. I imagine it's a sleeve with holes over the barrel that only needs to turn a little bit like some compensators/brakes. Or possibly it moves in and out a bit. That would be really easy to do with a lever on the receiver. For a long time I didn't know the MP5SD sub-gun had a perforated barrel making sub-sonic ammo unnecessary. There are so many holes in the barrel it bleeds off the velocity of standard ammo to sub-sonic before it gets to the muzzle. That's different from most sub-guns, although holes in the barrel are common practice as you said.
""It may be laid down as a primary position, and the basis of our system, that every Citizen who enjoys the protection of a free Government, owes not only a proportion of his property, but even his personal services to the defence of it, and consequently that the Citizens of America (with a few legal and official exceptions) from 18 to 50 Years of Age should be borne on the Militia Rolls, provided with uniform Arms, and so far accustomed to the use of them, that the Total strength of the Country might be called forth at a Short Notice on any very interesting Emergency." - George Washington.
