This would be an excellent feature. I'm guessing that it is not out of the box, but could be accomplished via a customization.
Maybe you should create an Idea and have everyone vote?
this could be done by using Jive System webhooks as Jill Ross already mentioned
You could listen for new accounts on a middleware server and have some logic to put the user which is created in Jive into a certain permission group based on the mail adress.
This can be done by using Jive REST API v3.14 → SecurityGroup service where manipulation is only allowed for Jive admins, so your middleware needs to be run with admin privileges by using OAuth with Jive...
If you interested in details, you can contact me.

We have this through a customization, but it requires a middleware server, and only works upon registration (not retroactive). The other route to go is SSO. If user types are determined by email domain, you can map the user types in your identity management system to permission groups in Jive.
We've customised this in too. We wanted to be able to run it across all our existing users (500k) and our Community existed before webhooks did, so we chose to write this into a Jive Java-based task which will run through users, resuming from the user ID it got to last. Webhooks are okay, but they're not guaranteed, so if they don't fire for some reason, you need a way to identify which users haven't been processed, which isn't ideal.
