There is a residential privacy policy, though it isn't something that
you can apply to an entire range of addresses automatically - you
effectively can still see the assignment size, so there is still a
swip action for each assignment.

https://www.arin.net/policy/nrpm.html Residential Customer Privacy
To maintain the privacy of their residential customers, an
organization with downstream residential customers holding /29 and
larger blocks may substitute that organization's name for the
customer's name, e.g. 'Private Customer - XYZ Network', and the
customer's street address may read 'Private Residence'. Each private
downstream residential reassignment must have accurate upstream Abuse
and Technical POCs visible on the WHOIS directory record for that
