Can I store mosaic dataset overviews in geodatabase?

I have loaded 194 DEMs geotiffs (overlapping, single band, same coordinate system, same pixel sizes) into a raster catalog within a file geodatabase called 'Data'.  I then created a mosaic dataset in the same geodatabase, and added the rasters from the raster catalog into the mosaic dataset.  I also checked the box to Build Overviews. 

 

I loaded the rasters from the raster catalog (as opposed to loading the tiffs directly into the mosaic dataset) because I wanted a neat package where all of my raster data was contained in the geodatabase.  However, the overviews are being built just outside the geodatabase in a windows directory called 'Data.Overviews'

 

Is there any way to get the Overviews into the geodatabase?  I'm using ArcGIS Desktop 10.3 (Advanced) on Windows 7, if that matters.

 

Thanks in advance!
