Asset hosting in EAS

I see in the new EAS docs (link) it mentions that the assetBundlePattern is no longer used for separating assets between your bundle and the CDN.

Is there any form of separating assets from app bundles in EAS? If not is there plans to re-introduce it?

assetBundlePatterns is how you can determine which assets are included in an OTA Update (and therefore hosted)

The difference in EAS is that the assets bundled into the actual app binary at build time are not determined by assetBundlePatterns anymore

I was looking to use assetBundlePattern to reduce my app bundle size. So just to confirm, with EAS I am no longer able have assets that are not bundled?

With EAS Build, all assets that are referenced in source code are bundled into the build itself (not the OTA Update)
