I've tried editing the service definition draft but that doesn't seem to work.

Hello - I should have mentioned that I'm not creating (sharing) manually. Instead, I use arcpy.mapping.CreateMapSDDraft() and arcpy.StageService_server() to create the *.sd file. Then, I add it to our AGOL using REST (/addItem). So, it seems like the default config in the *.sd file is to force tiling.
Example 7 here indicates that a *.sddraft file can be edited. Any idea if tiling can be turned off via this route?
I'm pursing this because we have ~240 services that I need to publish and want to automate that.
a small but useful detail, for the server end, have you explored the salient functions in arcpy from the previous examples like Manage Map Server Cache Tiles—Help | ArcGIS for Desktop
You might want to share this thread to another place in the developer community as well since it might get a better audience
Thanks for the suggestion.
