So that's is to say, you want the ELF linking symbols (.symtab
section) , not the debug symbols.

In addition, you want to only keep the linker symbols needed for the
purpose you stated above, and strip the rest.

I wonder if binutils could handle that.  The "strip" command at least
lets you specify a list of symbols to keep.
