[opensuse-buildservice] How to use preinstallimages in OBS?

Hey all,

I've been spending a few hours trying to use preinstall images[1] to
speed up builds in OBS.

However, it seems like after defining a _preinstallimage file in a
package space in a project, nothing uses it anyway. I've even tried
copying official OBS preinstall images[2].

I'm using OBS 2.8 with chroot builds and it's not working. I can build
them just fine, but no package build uses them... I've also tested
with OBS 2.9 beta and it similarly does not work.

What am I missing? Is there a prjconf directive I need to use to use
them? An option to set for the obsworker service? Or something else?

Thanks in advance and best regards,
