It could be laid that way but it shouldn;t and it would be a disaster.
When pavers are laid rigidly, they are laid onto a full mortar bed, not a bed of washed sand with cement, and they are jointed with the same, and very definitely NOT with a polymeric that cannot possibly retain blocks (or setts) in position against vehicular trafficking.
If someone is offering to lay the pavers this way, chase them away, and as quickly as possible. They know nothing about pavement construction and are, undeniably, complete idiots.
Clay pavers are not easy to lay well, and even competent contractors can struggle with them, so to leave the job in the hands of cowboys is just asking for trouble!
