Let me guess, the helical head is only a couple inches in diameter with rotatable square carbide cutters? If so, then unfortunately yes this is a limitation of the design. I once had a helical head on the larger model of dewalt planer and had this issue too. I eventually went to a 20” straight knife machine and it solved my scallop issues EXCEPT it’s not as good with highly figured woods, which you already know.
