No, but there may be a similar solution for you.
AFAIK RRDtool will skip unknown values.  You can use this to your
advantage by altering every occurance of 0 into NaN.

The average function will do this:
  sum(all rates not equal to NaN) / count(all intervals not rate==NaN)

The average of (0,10,20,30) is (0+10+20+30)/4
and the average of (NaN,10,20,30) is (10+20+30)/3

    DEF:myval=   ...
    PRINT:myval:AVERAGE:"The real average is %6.2lf\n"
    PRINT:altered:AVERAGE:"The modified average is %6.2lf\n"

The cdef does this:
  if (myval == 0)
    then return an unknown
    else return the value of myval
