I am not sure what you mean with that.

The result of a imputation model is the dataset as returned by -ice-,
and Rubin's rules apply to estimates not to data, so if we take your
statement literally than what you want cannot be done in any package.

After you have created your multiple imputed dataset you can use -mim-
(type in Stata: -findit mim-) to estimate models and combine the
estimates using Rubin's rules. Maybe that is what you are looking for.

Hope this helps,
Maarten
