From drivers/net/wireless/hostap/Kconfig:

config HOSTAP_FIRMWARE
        bool "Support downloading firmware images with Host AP driver"
        depends on HOSTAP
        ---help---
        Configure Host AP driver to include support for firmware image
        download. Current version supports only downloading to volatile, i.e.,
        RAM memory. Flash upgrade is not yet supported.

This is present in the vanilla-kernel - it's not a debian thing.
