Sorry if my original answer was unclear:
You cannot turn the conversion on/off.
By default, FFmpeg does no colour space 
conversion if not told so.
If you have xyz input, and you tell ffmpeg 
to encode prores, a conversion will be 
done (automatically) because prores does 
not support xyz.

As said, since I don't understand your 
usecase (you simply cannot use xyz as 
input for prores), I have difficulties 
answering your original question.
