Not able to select LLVM-Clang as toolset for a WinUI Desktop Project

I have done the necessary steps to be able to use LLVM Clang as a toolset for my Visual Studio project.

When I create a simple Win32 project, I am able to see LLVM-Clang as an option under toolset:

MicrosoftTeams-image (7)

However, when I create a WinUI project, I do not get this option at all:

MicrosoftTeams-image (6)

The template that I used to create the project is this one:

MicrosoftTeams-image (8)

Can someone please help in understand why this is happening or if there is a limitation that I should be aware about ? Was not able to locate any official documentation around this.
