That would be very unusual.
If your spare and the other wheels are the same, you will probably have to pay extra to get the 5-wheel rotate. Don't let them charge more than 125% of a 4-wheel rotation.
The spares on the Limited are not
the normally the same as the other 4 wheels.To do a 5-wheel rotate, ou would want to buy a fifth aloy wheel. I have a 5-wheel rotation done on my base.
The Sport models with the spare (no SAP) can do 5-wheel rotate.
I suggest you bring in the rotation pattern you prefer. If you have non-directional tires, I suggest the forward cross for the RAV4, since the car is front-wheel drive most of the time.
