That is absolutely correct.  The method exploads the rpms into a temp dir and 
snags the files matching the regex to place them on the install tree, and 
thus the iso media.

You could have all these things packaged as 'vendor-pack-foo' that drops 
things in /usr/share/doc/ for future reference or modification after the 
installation is done as well, so not only would you be able to get those 
files into the iso media, but you'd be able to have those files on the 
installed system for later reference, without having to go back to the media, 
or the install server, or playing games in %post.
