Road front delarieur on mtb frame

Good afternoon, I have some questions, could you help me please? Hehe
Can a road front derailleur be used on a mtb frame? I have a carbón mtb frame with direct mount front derailleur, and there are some road derailleurs that are direct mount, although I don't know if it's the same type of mount as my frame. Greetings and thanks in advance

For Shimano FD, never seen a road FD that uses that mount. Not familiar with gravel lineup to know what those could use.

The other issues with using road FD with MTB setup is cable pull from the shifters and chainring size that the cage is designed for.
