Yes the windows stools have the tongue.
Run one of their screws through the pocket hole (assuming they have them) and see how far it sticks out.

I have also installed the stool, then the casings with glue on the bottom of the legs, then take a trim screw and run it up through the stool and into the legs.

I build my casings and extension jambs as a unit that allows me to fasten my stool to the bottom of the casings.

I hate seeing any fasteners in my window sills (stools)

Look closley at the framing and you can see the biscuits I use to give it the support it needs

Learning more about tools everyday

If you aren't using extension jambs, you place a piece of sill temporarily where it will go to serve as a reference for the ends of the side casings. Install the side casings, then carefully nail up from the sill to the ends of the side casings, pre-drill for safety. You can clamp and glue the sill in the groove provided if you want to. Standard pieces of window sill will not have the tongue to fit in the Andersen groove. Some folks will cut the tongue, others will just fit to the window with a butt joint. It depends on the material, some are beveled underneath. With this type, you cut a rabbet rather than a tongue. After the sill is nailed up to the side casings, the apron goes up tight against the sill. No nails are used from the sill into the apron. An alternative is to place the apron then nail down into it where the side casings will cover the nails.
