How to programmatically add a block from Audio Toolbox to Simulink?

I have added a Simulink "In File" block programmatically:
add_block('simulink/Sinks/To File',...)
How do I add a block from Audio Toolbox?
I tried
add_block('Audio Toolbox/Sources/From Multimedia File',..)
but it fails with "There is no block named 'Audio Toolbox/Sources/From Multimedia File'".

Except if the block comes from built-in, in that case you should look at the
