This is local package installation from a file? `rpm-ostree install /path/to/file.rpm` should
work. Am I missing something?

no plans other than some discussion in an upstream issue:

I'm not really sure why /usr/local/lib/firmware isn't used by Fedora.
Maybe we can have someone from the kernel team comment. Added cc to
Laura Abbott to see if she knows why.
