I believe the licenses of most firmware should pose no problem for
their inclusion on Debian's CD images.

The text you quoted covers 3rd party distributors who wish to include the firmware on media that they would distribute (which would not be considered official Debian media either).

For official media, it would go against #1 of the SC and (depending on the exact firmware) at least #2 and #3 of the DGSG.
