No, bacula does not know about the needed cleaning, all you can do
within bacula is define which label is a cleaning tape to prevent
bacula trying to mount it.
As there is currently no way to suspend/resume a job within bacula,
there is no way to do some cleaning in between, either.
What you could do is, if you have some way to detect when cleaning is
needed, to patch the mtx-changer script to just load the cleaning tape
if a tape change and cleaning is needed.
Possibly 'mt status' gives the needed info.
