Yes, yes they do and when I asked the same question to the second in command of my Council (both of which shall remain nameless) he said that the Council has already done so. Will it hurt? Yes. Will some units lose charters? Probably, but it is the right thing to do.

10/29/2020 Certification of Debtor's Counsel regarding 1519 which was edited - shorter periods.
10/30/2020 Order signed by Judge Silverstein:
The exclusive period for the Debtors to file a chapter 11 plan (the “Exclusive Filing Period”) is hereby extended by approximately 155 days, to and including March 19, 2021. The period during which the Debtors have the exclusive right to solicit acceptances thereof (the “Exclusive Solicitation Period” and, together with the Exclusive Filing Period, the “Exclusive Periods”) is hereby extended by approximately 154 days, to and including May 18, 2021.
Two things in regard to the most recent posts.
The Ineligible Volunteer Files were not secret to the councils, they were simply not public information, due to their actual nature. All councils had access to check a volunteer if they felt it necessary; that was the whole point to begin with. That was by phone or mail initially, and at some point, likely became available in some electronic form. They did not hide this information within the organization. But it was not developed to share with anybody, though I believe if asked by another group, they likely would have reviewed it on a case by case basis. So, the idea that they were "secret" is over hyped. Again, they were simply an internal check based on the era in which they started. And many of them had nothing to do with "perversion", but rather other possible poor models such as major felons and so on.
Secondly, anybody that is paying any attention and has involvement with Scouting should be completely aware of the ongoing lawsuits and the bankruptcy. I seriously doubt many CO's exist that would not have the awareness to see where they might stand in this regard. Recharter has not hidden the information from the CO's, and certainly the yellow press has done their best to make sure people know about it. So, IMO, the hyperbole regarding that is simply foolish and not a real concern.
I was at our Methodist church today, and they certainly are aware. The National Men's group, who is the representative for Youth Serving has notified all units to file as needed. Our Pastor told me it has been done, and that the local Conference is keeping up with it as well.
