There is no need of that because Intune tightly integrated with Azure Active Directory.

Intune Enrollment Restriction Rules for SCCM Admins

Enrollment restriction are another configuration which is available in Intune. I don’t see this kind of similar configuration available in SCCM.

So you can restrict a particular device based on the OS and based on the enrollment method which each which you use within your organization. Intune infra setup is explained in the above video.

For example, if you want to restrict BYOD devices from enrolling into Intune, then you can do that for Windows, iOS, and Android. The only company owned devices can be enrolled into Intune.
