Sure you can with an appropriate hook function.

This is what I use to prevent clock in to NEXT when it is a capture task
or a project/subproject (ie. any task with subtasks)

You can modify it to use a property instead to achieve what you want.

The helper functions (bh/is-task-p, bh/is-project-p) are available at

;; Change tasks to NEXT when clocking in
(setq org-clock-in-switch-to-state 'bh/clock-in-to-next)

(defun bh/clock-in-to-next (kw)
  "Switch a task from TODO to NEXT when clocking in.
Skips capture tasks, projects, and subprojects.

  (when (not (and (boundp 'org-capture-mode) org-capture-mode))
     ((and (member (org-get-todo-state) (list "TODO"))
     ((and (member (org-get-todo-state) (list "NEXT"))
