I'm installing Office 365 ProPlus (with Teams) on computers in our environment.
Is there any way to prevent the log-in screen that pops up for Microsoft Teams on a fresh computer?
I'd prefer it to auto-sign in, but if that is not possible then I'd like to prevent auto start on.
Any registry settings that I can set on computers?

I have no idea how I missed that registry key in my searches, thank you!
Tested and works exactly as advertised! Also when the user open Teams at some point of their own free will then it reverts to default "automatically start on sign in", perfect.
For others wondering;
Use Group Policy to prevent Microsoft Teams from starting automatically after installation
...you can add the PreventFirstLaunchAfterInstall value to the HKEY_CURRENT_USER\SOFTWARE\Policies\Microsoft\Office\16.0\Teams key in the registry. The type for PreventFirstLaunchAfterInstall is REG_DWORD and the value should be set to 1 if you don't want Teams to automatically start after installation.

Yes of course, I might have worded myself wrongly. On first log in after installation it displays a big window prompting the user to continue to sign in (basically just a "Log In" button that the user has to click without providing credentials...)
The GPO \ registry setting mentioned above stops this default behavior, which is what I needed
I don't like users receiving a multitude of windows to deal with on their first sign in if it can be avoided.
