I personally like the idea of packaging addons, for the same reasons I
like getting Firefox from Fedora rather than directly from Mozilla. Some
example benefits are that it ensures the license is free (I don't know
whether Mozilla enforces licenses to be free or not, but I assume they
do not), and that the plugin came from known sources.
And there is no warning if you click in firefox-57.0-2.fc27.x86_64 on any
add-on that it is installing a non-Fedora-signed add-on.
(Then there is also "Update Add-ons Automatically" turned on by default but
I could not verify whether it really applies on rpm-installed add-ons or not.)
