I've seen this for graphics products when talking about
"fillable shapes" vs shapes that you can't fill. I would
try to get Marketing to use this term only when they
need to contrast something that can be filled in with
something that can't, and not just to use it randomly
as an adjective. (For example, readers would probably
assume that they can fill in a form that you're providing
to them unless you tell them otherwise.)

I can tell you that RMF doesn't have "fillable" in it at all :->
