So the problem only occurs when installing on a host you don't have
physical access to and which requires non-free firmware blobs to
access the network? Does it occur in any other situation?

I've never had to do such a thing, what is your current approach to
that? I assume you aren't using CD images here since you mentioned

What makes it problematic to modify the install media (initrd I guess)
you downloaded and add the firmware?
