No it's not, and yes there are. Not sure if it would be appropriate to give a shout out to them here (pine64-specific forum), so I better not.

There are? All I know of do contain firmware in some chips. You just can't /do not need to upload it into the chip yourself. While this might solve some licensing issues it does not do anything regarding truly free devices.

I've just taken a look at the displayport source for the analogix dp transmitter and it does indeed require firmware.
Where does this blob come from, can you share a link to it? Interested in the license.

License seems to be this one https://git.kernel.org/pub/scm/linux/ker...E.rockchip

Blob is this one https://git.kernel.org/pub/scm/linux/ker...p/dptx.bin
