Heads-up: available privacy permissions are Accessibility, AddressBook, All, AppleEvents, Calendar, Camera, ContactsFull, ContactsLimited, Facebook, FileProviderDomain, FileProviderPresence, LinkedIn, Liverpool, Location, MediaLibrary, Microphone, Motion, Photos, PhotosAdd, PostEvent, Reminders, ScreenCapture, ShareKit, SinaWeibo, Siri, SpeechRecognition, SystemPolicyAllFiles, SystemPolicyDesktopFolder, SystemPolicyDeveloperFiles, SystemPolicyDocumentsFolder, SystemPolicyNetworkVolumes, SystemPolicyRemovableVolumes, SystemPolicySysAdminFiles, SystemPolicyDownloadsFolder, TencentWeibo, Twitter, Ubiquity, Willow.

Heads-up: “Location Services” is handled differently so tccutil has no effect.
