Your question is better raised in the EM or Hadronic Forum.

I am not the expert, but I can answer this question with no. I can see that the only places/processes/models that ProposeNonIonizingEnergyDeposit are:

G4hCoulombScatteringModel, G4eSingleCoulombScatteringModel, G4IonCoulombScatteringModel, G4NuclearStopping, G4HadronElasticProcess

and in each case it is when a secondary particle is below the production cut, its kinEnergy is 'proposed' as NonIonizingEnergyDeposit.

In all other cases, like the photoelectric effect, secondaries below the range cut are not thus considered.

I must admit, I myself have had problems with the concept of 'non-ionizing energy deposit'. You may find postings in the aforementioned forum explaining the concept.
