 > My understanding of it was to block accesss for all the sites connected
 via SSO

 It is.

 > The role I mentioned could prevent access by removing all the user's
 capabilities, clearing all sessions, and checking for that role upon login

 It is not that simple. All of those things are possible (and will likely
 happen) but the role is mostly irrelevant.

 WordPress Roles are per-site. There is no such thing as an "installation
 wide" user role. There is no code to check if a user is blocked on any of
 dozens of sites that currently exist.

 (For example, if I block a user from bbPress.org, they are not
 automatically blocked on WordPress.org.)

 Code needs to written to prevent access globally, across everything, no
 matter what WordPress Site they are misbehaving on, and a single Role on a
 single Site cannot do that by itself.
