I have found the documentation which suggests this is possible, but also seems to hint that this is for sharing across personal projects rather than in a team environment. There are also many stackoverflow, et. al., posts which ask the same question with no response other than a pointer to the same Qt documentation I've already read.

Afaik you can use sdktool (located in Qt Creator’s libexec dir, i.e. libexec/ on Linux, bin/ on Windows, Resources/ on macOS) to register a Kit with a specific id. This will appear as “auto-detected”, and is also used by the Qt installers to register kits with pre-set Qt versions.
