Can a BIP39 12-word menmonic be used to restore a wallet through bitcoin-cli?

I could not find documentation on using a 12-word BIP39 Mnemonic to restore a wallet through bitcoin-cli. It seems that importprivkey might be the right RPC call but when I provide the 12 words, it says “Invalid private key encoding” I also tried the following formats which were generated by Ian Coleman’s page from

BIP39 Seed BIP32 Root Key Account Extended Private Key BIP32 Extended Private Key

Perhaps the master seed menmonic is useless if all you have is bitcoin-cli and the bitcoind to which it’s attached. Is that the case?
