I had a thought that some kind of plate made its way into diesels.

My 1982 Mercedes 300SD had the compressor outlet bolted to the intake manifold with no in-between anything.
Inside the manifold there was the engine shutoff flapper, but that's different.

You can call the accelerator linkage to a diesel throttle linkage, but it in fact links to the fuel injection pump, where in a mechanical pump, the flow is controlled. Maybe that can be called fuel throttling.
The factory manual for that old boat was in German, so it has a name consisting from numerous letters...
