I m a little concerned because the landing slabs are “captured” on all 4 sides by steel – and the landing sits down flush into the structure. If I glue in place, I can t get clamps on it.

Been faced with similar situations as well. If you have access from the underside, which you typically do with designs like these, you can use hanger bolts(and plugs) to pull the pieces together.
Really It all depends on what’s deemed acceptable by you, or the customer. If you or they don’t have an issue with a profiled joint in the middle of the landing, do it that way.
I couldn’t get away with it most of the time….designers and architects are ‘funny’ like that.
