Per my understading, the rtc32k Amlogic clock is an internal clock and
cannot be an external one. Amlogic has provided it as an internal 32k
stable clock with low jitter.

You're absolutely right that there is no data available to confirm the
choice of an external RTC clock in the CCF. However, as per the approach
we discussed with Martin and Heiner, we can still use the RTC clock as a
parent for PWM in the current implementation. If the parent clock
already has 32k, we do not change the rate from the PWM driver. The
benefit of this approach is that reparenting is still available, but the
PWM child cannot change the RTC frequency; it simply uses the
appropriate parent clock. Additionally, if the parent is already set to
rtc32k, we shouldn't change it.
