What is the best practice for removing template files that have been defined in PHP files?

For example I want to remove helper/summary_short.phtml on category pages, normally I'd remove the block via XML. But I can't do this as the template isn't defined in a block, it's defined in PHP.


     * Array of available template name
     * @var array
    protected $_availableTemplates = [
        self::FULL_VIEW => 'helper/summary.phtml',
        self::SHORT_VIEW => 'helper/summary_short.phtml',

I figured this out right after finishing the question, the template is also called within vendor/magento/module-catalog/view/frontend/templates/product/list.phtml - line 72.

<?php echo $block->getReviewsSummaryHtml($_product, $templateType); ?>

I removed this in my own template file successfully removed the template - app/design/frontend/**VENDOR**/**THEME**/Magento_Catalog/templates/product/list.phtml
