Great, that was easy, thank you:

(add-to-list ’org-cite-biblatex-styles ’(“full” nil “fullcite” nil nil))

(This or something similar should be added upstream).

I know writing documentation is a lot of work. It is easy to complain, but hard
to contribute. I think we need:
• A complete description of styles and variants (for the actual citation
  command, and also for `#+cite_export: ...') or at least a link to an
  up-to-date table.
• An improved description of the capabilities of `org-cite-insert' (i.e., that
  it can change the citation style and variant).
