It wouldn't be that explicit. You would do it by hooking a modulator
to some CC input and using it to extend the volume decay phase - you
can do that in the soundfont or the synth.

However, I don't see a way to do it with the sustain pedal, since that
suppresses all noteoff events while it is held. You would want to
connect the pedal to some different CC. So, what you have is a
property of the synth, but could be replicated with some effort.
