Can a mate connector owned by many parts? Or how to configure owner part of a mate connector?

I have a gearbox assembly that can changes the reduction radio. Gear1 and gear2 are in the gearbox. I can change the configuration of gear1, such as 60, 72.

In part studio gear1, I configure supression of derived 60, 72, because I use kisssoft to design gears and Import step.

I need to add mate connector to gear1. But if the mate connector owned by 60, it will wrong when I change the configuration to 72.

I don't want to create two mate connectors, because I need to use different mate connectors in gearbox assembly.

    Same mate connector can't be owned by multiple parts, but we can create MC for each part at the same position.
