Android APK Exceeds 100MB Because of Nuget Package

I've been building an application for a client over the past six months or so and it's dependent on a third party SDK called DocumentReader. This scans and parses travel documents like passports.

The library of documents is huge, and thus the SDK / Nuget package is 100MB on its own.

I know you can circumvent the 100MB limit using expansion files... but what if the size is caused by a library? Is there a way to package the SDK as its own expansion file?

    I've reached out to the publisher of the SDK again and I think we might be working on a way to reduce the size.

    I'm assuming since there was no answer that there's no way to do this?
