For some reason, Tesla's been able to get away with this for years w/UI that lets you charge to whatever % you want. 2017 and 2018 Bolt had a hilltop reserve toggle. Turning it on made it not charge as full. 2019+ Bolt have UI that lets you limit charge anywhere from 40 to 100% in 5% increments. Current HyunKia EVs also have some charge limiter UI, I believe in 10% increments and even separate settings for AC vs. DC charging.
Audi etron has 50% to 100% limit at 10% increments, can set up home as different than general locations, and can set up other locations as different as well. Not sure how many, more than two locations have have "advanced charging settings" for just that location. I think, but have yet to try, that applies to DC as well as AC charging. My general charging target is 100%.
So you could set 80% at home, 70% at work, 50% at some favorite vacation spot, and 100% generally. And maybe more locations, owner's manual does not give a limit and I've only tried two. This is a nice feature.
The charge timers, on the other hand, are a hot mess.
