It's currently the same as with qt 5:

 *  FEATURE_developer_build does (among other things) enable tests (BUILD_TESTING) by default, for most platforms.
 * QT_NO_MAKE_TESTS defines whether a default build will build the tests; the default is OFF (so a mere ninja/jom ... will build all tests)

Question is whether this is actually what we want in Qt 6, see  https://bugreports.qt.io/browse/QTBUG-84471 for some discussion.
