As far as I understand the code, from QGIS perspective, that's pretty much the
same thing. Even if .gpkg is technically closer to sqlite/spatialite. But in
any case you have to check with http://gdal.org/ogr/drv_geopackage.html what
dataset and layer creation options are available.
FYI, I'm currently working on a GDAL RFC that should make all that knowledge
of OGR drivers metadata to go from QGIS back to GDAL.
