Can I withdraw from the beta program and get the official One UI 4.0 Android 12 without a downgrade?

I'm not an expert on this sort of thing, but my understanding is that when updating software you have a sort of program that adjusts code from the old software to look like the new. For this you have to know what the starting code looks like, right? So the updates are written with a devices currently active software in mind, to change the way things are without making it so one piece of code doesn't make issues with another line (this is probably a big part of what beta testing looks for). My understanding is that we can't update as beta users because the little program that changes our code to the new code isn't written, but the program to move from stable versions is. That's why beta users are having to downgrade...so withdrawing but not downgrading wouldn't be possible.
Like I said, I'm not an expert but this is my understanding, and maybe it will at least answer your question.

I'm anxious for the update, too! I'm eager to get my digital sim working so I can finally have usable cell service at home, without giving up my current phone plan

Hello @BryanMars ,

Device has to downgrade to Android 11 before upgrading to Android 12 if deregistering from the program.
