With update 16.1, Associative Extraction will treat a Smart solid as a Parametric solid before extracting an associative edge or face. After extraction, the parent Smart solid will get converted to a Parametric solid.
You can select a solid. Then select a Face or an Edge on the solid to extract and click enter to complete extraction of the geometry. The resultant Face or Edge will maintain an association with the parent solid after extraction.
