Impossible. Well, almost: it's possible exactly once only, by the
time the application section is still unprogrammed, so you don't have
to issue a chip erase command first.
Next time, the application section has to be erased, and the only
method the ISP algorithm offers for this is a chip erase, which will
(obviously) also erase the bootloader. The ISP algorithm doesn't
offer a page erase capability.
(All this applies to classic AVRs: Xmegas are organized differently.)
