In that case I would need some hints where to make the switch from NETWORKDAYS in the cell (UI or file) and the two internal functions.

I'd avoid changing existing Add-In functions, it's a source of hassle ;-)
We also have better control over functionality and mappings in the
compiler when using internal interpreter functions.

Rather implement an ODFF compliant NETWORKDAYS function at the
interpreter that shares implementation with ScNetWorkdays_MS() (syntax
and semantics are equal, aren't they? I didn't look up now) and rename
the Add-In one to NETWORKDAYS_ADD, note that this will also need
adapting the entry in sc/source/core/tool/odffmap.cxx and the entries in
the mappings of sc/source/filter/excel/xlformula.cxx and
sc/source/filter/oox/formulabase.cxx, the latter may probably write
NETWORKDAYS.INTL for the ODFF NETWORKDAYS. I'll help you to figure out
