[alpine-user] Wifi device not detected after disk-based installation

I am having an issue where Alpine Linux properly detects the wireless interface on my Raspberry Pi 3 B+ just fine for a normal install, but when I use the tutorial from the wiki to make a disk-based install it is not found. I have pulled my hair out trying every page on the Alpine wiki and everything I can find on Google with no results. The module will not load, and I cannot find a clear, unambiguous set of instructions for how to troubleshoot an issue with loading firmware for the Pi. I find things like "if you make a firmware directory Alpine will load that before boot" but of course they do not mention the name of the directory to make.

Can someone point to anything that can help me to get the bloody drivers loaded on a disk-based install?
