Is there a way to show showbreak character at the end of the line that is wrapping, not at the beginning of the next one?

1. Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet, consectetur \
   adipiscing elit, sed do eiusmod tempor \
   incididunt ut labore et dolore magna \
2. Ut enim ad minim veniam...

Where \ represent these showbreak characters.

According to :help showbreak

String to put at the start of lines that have been wrapped.

this seems to not be possible. (As the character is not really a part of the buffer even some elaborate function will not help)
