AFAIK there is no way to search for filenames in packages if they are

That's not true for DNF, Yum, or Zypper. All of them have a way to
search for files through the repodata, and match it to packages.

the repodata usually contains only files from selected directories though.

No, the rpm-md repodata has the full file list. The primary.xml.gz
includes a selected subset, yes, but filelists.xml.gz contains the
full file list. OBS unfortunately ignores both file lists, but they
are there.
