Assembly Features - How exactly do they work??? (do they?)

R2017x

I'm trying to create an assembly hole.  I want it to be effective ONLY at assembly level, and ONLY against one instance of a particular object.  So far, every attempt to do this eludes me.

What I've done:

1) Created assembly hole

2) Set the affected representation (is it possible to set an instance?)

3) Updated the "Solid Impact" feature in the part

4) Wallowed in my disappointment, as the feature appears in all instances

 

This is really not a well documented feature, and is not working as expected. I don't even seem to have control over how to constrain the location.
