qmake uses xcrun to determine which SDK to use. pyqtdeploy-sysroot (when qmake is not being used) uses the latest SDK according to the version number embedded in the filename.

You can change it in qmake my setting modifying QMAKE_MAC_SDK in the .pro file.

However, there is no need to not use the latest available SDK.
