I don’t think it’s what you’re looking for, but I seem to recall that the Steiner-Parker filter is somewhat along those lines.

It’s also not what you’re looking for, but the GX-1 VCF is Sallen Key-is with a diode bridge control element.

Maybe you’re looking for the patents cited on Don’s page here?
