Can the nRF52840 dongle be used as a Bluetooth 5.0 peripheral via Raspberry Pi 3 running linux

Hi all, can the nRF52840 dongle be used as an external Bluetooth 5.0 peripheral  via a Raspberry Pi 3 running Linux?

I received this message from my engineer

'The drivers in question are USB ACM CDC class effectively UART and not full blown HCI level, so whilst it would allow a USB port to talk with the development boards it wouldn’t contain the full Bluetooth stack to act like a typical Bluetooth dongle.

If its not possible to use nRF52840 via nRF Connect is there firmware available to allow the nRF52840 to act like a typical dongle?

thanks
