As an example that, IMO, this should work, the media seems to have both
ucode-intel and ucode-amd, right? Well, I just checked and on my Intel laptop,
ucode-intel and *only* ucode-intel has been installed.

That seems to me like it could confirm the theory that "Supplements:" work fine
(as ucode-intel was installed while ucode-amd wasn't), but only if the package
with the proper "Supplements:" is available (which in this case means it should
be present in the DVD).

Does this make sense?
