Changing layer properties with ArcPy

Can layer properties be changed with arcpy in ArcGIS Pro? For example, I need to change 3D layer elevation properties from "At an absolute height" to "On the ground". However, I always have to do it manually and then convert the Multipatch to feature class. 

In ArcMap, there is the UpdateLayer(), but it seems to be missing in ArcGIS Pro.

There appears to be an 'extrusion' method in the 'Layer' class with extrusion_type as a parmeter Layer—ArcGIS Pro | Documentation

I'm guessing it just needs an aprx save after applying.
