Allow agent injector to fail gracefully if secret path not found

We have default references for development and we set the deployment with the needed annotations to get secrets from a default conventional path that the dev team is free to manage by itself, BUT at time 0 no secret is in the path (so even the path is non existing … untill a first secret is written)
The application could start even without secrets, but the injector will try for 11 times to get secrets with no success and warning: “no secret exists at kv-v2/…”.
Is there a way to tell the injector “there could not be a secret, just go on normally run the template with a defautl value or an empty one that in the template we could manage” and let the pod start?
