The Help info with the program is actually nicely complete, but just briefly now, IIRC, (and assuming that you can discriminate easily between the FICT records and ones with other kinds of call numbers), you should be able to read and copy info from a subfield like $100a, truncate (to 3 or 4), and append that to the field of your choosing for call number.
I hope that quick explanation makes some sense and gives you another option.
In the meanwhile, welcome to the Koha community and good luck with your library going live!

You could create a plugin to do this based on something like your itemtype
or something, and link it to the itemcallnumber field. This would require a bit
