If you type help(annotatePeakInBatch), you will see that there is a
parameter "output" with three options. By default, it is set to nearestStart
which will generate nearest features without any distance constraint. If you
set "output" to one of the other two options, then the distance cutoff can
be set by specifying "maxgap", e.g., 5000 as 5kb. Please let me know if this
answers your questions.

Best regards,
