How? Main is free software that doesn't require non-free code.
Contrib is free software that does require non-free code.
Note that the social contract does not use the word "depends". Code goes
in contrib if it requires non-free code regardless of whether or not
that is expressed as a dependency in the package management sense. All
of the hardware under discussion requires non-free code.
