The Panasonic DA7 did, and the Mackie dxb does, but you have to make
them. Same with the Sony DMX-R100. You need to look at the Routing
page and scratch your head for a while. I'll bet the Yamaha
DM1000/2000 can do it too, but I don't know for sure.

The DM-8000 had four "floating" inserts which were D/A and A/D
converters going out to a set of jacks. They could be assigned in the
digital path of any channel. It was a great idea, but as often as
people have asked how they can insert an analog processor in line with
a digital recorder return, nobody else ever picked up on it, at least
not at the "project level" console. TASCAM never built any of their
other digital consoles with this feature.
Most consoles have inserts, but they're only for analog inputs (which
is the 16 you read about on the DM-8000).
