Based on the discussion I successfully employed another, somewhat cumbersome, work-around to the FCP 10.4/High Sierra/XDCAM upload problem:

1. Copy the large linked-clip XDCAM video file onto a drive.

2. Create a series of new folders corresponding to each of the linked video clips from within the SD card (find them in a sub folder named CLPR).

3. Within each of the individual newly created clip folders create a nested series of sub-folders matching the XDCAM file structure (private>SONY>BPAV>CLPR).

4. From inside the original BPAV folder (see step 1) duplicate the files into each of the newly created BPAV folders (CUEUP.XML, General, MEDIAPRO.XML, TAKR).

5. Individually copy each of the linked video clip folders (from the original CLPR folder) into their own new separated folder. The video clip folder should include all of the additional contents (the MP4 video file, and .SMI, .PPN, .XML, .BIN files).

Since they don't exceed the 4GB limit, Final Cut Pro 10.4 will import them as separate video clips that you can link back together again in the edit timeline.
