No.. "droid 4", not "4 timeslot" above :)

See the McBSP3 parts of the diagram at [0]. The PMIC has
register bits for timeslots 0 to 2:

$ git grep CPCAP | grep TIMESLOT

OK. Right now I'm only configuring things at the PMIC
end as the clocking is different compared to using CPCAP
PMIC voice codec and when routing data from the MDM voice
call codec to the CPCAP PMIC.

OK. Sounds like what you're describing could be used to route the
MDM voice codec audio for capture to a file via McBSP etc.

Two DAIs on the PMIC, one at McBSP2 and one shared with MDM codec
at McBSP3.

OK sure.
