Looks like mkcert is just for generating certificates. You can use them with any web server basically though this tutorial only explains how to attach them to CRA.

Apache/Nginx follow simple approach so only generate cert with mkcert and bind them with you server config file in and reload the server.

I used with Node, Apache and nginx. Works perfectly. Like Alex said, it is just a certificate generation tool.
