Yes, if I want to set up a partiution to use a spcifi tytpe of FS I'll install
the toolkit for administering that.
So what?
I don't use BtrFS so I don't have that toolkit.

Without that toolkit I can't mkfs.btrfs anyway

# mkfs.btrfs
If 'mkfs.btrfs' is not a typo you can use command-not-found to lookup the
package that contains it, like this:
cnf mkfs.btrfs
main:~ # cnf mkfs.btrfs

The program 'mkfs.btrfs' can be found in following packages:
* btrfsprogs [ path: /sbin/mkfs.btrfs, repository: zypp (repo-oss) ]
* btrfsprogs [ path: /usr/sbin/mkfs.btrfs, repository: zypp (repo-oss) ]

Try installing with:
zypper install btrfsprogs

So your point is a bit off the mark.

install the rpm for the filesystems it created, later during the
installation. I doubt this hook exist, and it would be complext to do.

I don't think so.

There are many things I've done with Yast where it has asked me to install a

# cat /proc/filesystems | egrep -v nodev
