With issue level security, can permissions be setup for issue contacts to automatically get access?

After you apply security schemes to issues, is it possible to configure issues to automatically allow contacts listed in the issue to get access? For example, reporter and watcher automatically get comment access?

So something like this:

  • Our team gets edit access to EVERY issue
  • Issue submitter and watchers = can make comments
  • Our team, submitter, and watchers = can add new watchers

No. There is no dynamic way to delete or add users to the permission scheme. 

And there is no way to say submitter/watchers mentioned in an issue get access?

And I don't mean explicitly giving userA to permission to the issue.

In that case, how can we implement issue based permissions? If each issue has sensitive details, how can we ensure that only our team and issue contacts can see the issue?

Aside from security schemes there is no way to implement issue security. 

And the security schemes don't let you configure rules that say issue creator and watchers can view/comment? So not saying "user1 can view/comment" but rather "issue creator can view/comment" and then whoever the creator is for an issue will get the appropriate access.
