Since char formats can be used anywhere in the document, getting a set distance will be difficult. But sure, you can add a slash-t ("\t") in there, but it's a tab and not a tab stop declaration. I do this. Of course I limit this xref format's use to it being the only entry in a paragraph, which has an actual tab stop assigned to it. So yes, you can likely do what you need to do provided you marry up the xref and the paragraph style into a combined use.
