When adding parts to any Daisy built unit, can you add in pcb connectors right to the extra open slots on the sides of daisy?

So I want to add 8 encoders like the Field has to Daisy Pod. Then program it with the Field Oopsy firmware to be an 8 knob midi controller. To do this I know I need to add a mux chip and whatever other supporting circuits and I feel it should just work if I put wires in the right place. Maybe more power idk.

This would allow me to simply and effectively add up to 8 more control knobs to Daisy Patch via midi. And honestly who wouldnt want a few extra knobs?
