I suspect that there won't be a wget option for that. (Unless "-k"
has grown more options recently.)

I imagine that a perl or sed script to edit the files in-place may
be simplest.

It does depend on the content; but looking for the string ".php?" may
be a good start -- does that match anything that you do not want to
convert? And then: is there anything left that you do want to convert?

Good luck with it,
