The Firmware page on Debian Wiki[1] answers your question:

"Alternatively, we also provide parallel installer image builds that
also include all the non-free firmware packages directly."

So, it's a mix of both alternatives you mentioned: a regular (libre)
Debian kernel + all non-free firmware packages.
