The Properies view lets you edit the navigability and other attributes
of the association's ends. So, you can just draw the association and
then make the appropriate end(s) non-navigable.

Both are roles. But depending on your code generation and target platform, they may or may not appear in the final product.
In a Database, for examples, some Associations are represented as Tables. The table typically needs the two ends. In a Java Class, associations are represented as Attributes (And sometimes, specific collections to ensure consistency with the opposite end).
My point is that the UML Model is (should be) an abstraction. It will always contain extra information (Useful in some specific cases, useless in other). So, there's no universal answer.
But for the simplest code generator, "owned by association" often means "ignored"; which is, if I understand correctly, what you want.
