ELF annex the ELF loader does not cater for this.

ELF looks at the libname.so entries in its cache.  These are typically
symbolically linked to the highest versioned libname.so.N.

Entries with minor numbers, such as the old a.out styled libname.so.N.M, are
not an official part of the ELF standard.  Nor is the Linux standard of
libname.so.N.M.T (number, major, trivial) an official standard (they symlink
the .so.N to the .so.N.M.T).

No standard way short of changing symbolic links, but this also influences
run-time behaviour.

Unless I am missing something obvious.
