Expanding Background in cv2.watershed

When running cv2.watershed the sure background (label 1) is behaves similarly to any other label, i.e. it “expands” in the unknown area (label 0). In my application, the sure background is known and should stay fixed, and I am interested only in the foreground (label 2…n, where “n” is the total number of labels) to “expand” in the unknown area . Is there a way to do this?

Thank you
