To clarify one thing in that regard: it appears that data provided through environment hooks are available at build time only to packages explicitly specifying a build dependency in their package.xml upon the hook provider package.

Yes, that's intentional. It also happens transitively, so if A defines a hook, B depends on A, and C depends on just B, then C will still see the side effect of the hook in A despite not directly depending on A.
