Some of them might

No, unless a remote key is introduced

Project Yara is a single player game
What size is a door?
A door is just big enough to let one person in at a time
Does it have to be big enough for a player to get through?
Yes
What about allies following you?
In the case of project Yara NPC’s are able to open and close door alone. So that should be no problem. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_MlE3J_s_zY
How many of them need to get through the door without getting stuck?
Only one person at a time.
