Can we assign the Borel hulls in a monotone way?

A hull of A ⊆ [0, 1] is a set H containing A such that λ * (H) = λ * (A). We investigate all four versions of the following problem. Does there exist a monotone (with respect to inclusion) map that assigns a Borel/G δ hull to every negligible/measurable subset of [0, 1]? Three versions turn out to be independent of ZFC, while in the fourth case we only prove that the nonexistence of a monotone G δ hull operation for all measurable sets is consistent. It remains open whether existence here is
