Apache to NGINX Migration - Mime Magic Alternative

I'm using nginx/1.10-3 and apache2-2.4.25-3 on Debian.

For many reasons i won't go into, I'm looking to switch to NGINX from Apache2.

My CMS has many files that either have no extensions, or have the wrong extension in terms of lining up with mime.types.

With Apache2 we rely on mod_mime_magic to override the extension and use the magic bytes to correctly set the content-type. However, I can't seem to find a way to get this on NGINX.

For example, we have images that end in .img and some files with no extension at all.

The only solution I can come up with, is to integrate extension rewriting/adding into the platform and change the extensions on upload and go through the existing ones. This will take a lot more time, though.
