If “'some”, only fill in the gaps that are needed to tie loose threads

As Clément wrote, you could use `\\='more' if you want the curled
version to look like ‘'more’. However, the curled version shouldn't look
like that. It should look like ‘more’ without the apostrophe. Doc

would yield those values.
