The 7zips do not contain it, right. Though we could and should provide the sdktool.7z there as well.

Replacing the content of what the installer installed behind its back will probably bite you in other ways as well. The installer keeps a bill of materials of things to deinstall for example.
You can install Qt Creator from the offline installer somewhere else, and either set up Qt versions manually, or use a trick to share the setup by creating a symbolic links from <Qt>/Tools/QtCreator/share/qtcreator/QtProject to the new Qt Creator’s share/qtcreator location. Qt Creator 4.12 adds a hint and button that does something similar for you directly.
