-marginsplot- is a command, not a function.

It's general in Stata graphics that you can't omit data by using
-xsc()- or -ysc()- or -yla()- or -xla()-. You can extend the graph
that way, but there isn't a side-effect of constraining the graph
because the labels specified don't cover the entire range of the data.
Just imagine the complaints if that were true.

My guess is that what you want is programmable but not easily.

The Y-axis only shows .02 and .06 however, there are curves that dip far below .02 and STATA automatically scales the graph to show those lines.  If you can imagine, the .02 rests in the middle of the Y-Axis and there is a lot of white space below.
