How do you Edit androidmanifest in .aab file?

I was able to convert androidmanifest to XML using a tool but the reverse process was a familiar. Also I wanted to remove some permissions and the reverse to XML process was a familiar. All I want is to remove certain permissions from aab file and sign it

Export apk, use apk editor or a similar program to remove permissions from manifest then use APK2AAB to convert apk to aab. See more in Edit or Modify the AAB file - Guides - Kodular Community

i used the modern apk2aab tool with no output file. it says check output path
