The 5th row (and passenger side 4th) exterior seats previously had a large torx head bolt holding them down, rather than the spring-loaded release handle in all the rest of the rows. Here's a pic of the rails, and you can see the difference in the seats on the passenger side, and the one mount next to the rear A/C. At least in 2020 the 3rd row single seat had changed to the spring-loaded release.

So yes you can remove the seats though it requires a little more effort. The other downside of that is the mount sits above the floor slightly, rather than being flush/below the floor level:

Oh ya, and there is a good video on Youtube I saw before I even ordered my Passenger van that I still have bookmarked. I wanted a Passenger van with the least number of seats so did a lot of Googling at the time. I think this will be bookmarked to his explanation on how to remove the "fixed" seats ... more involved than that single torx bolt.

If if doesn't start at the right point, fast forward to 23:45:
