Put another way, the responsibility to secure the communication between a domain and device from the same manufacturer is left at a higher level than Bluetooth, or Web Bluetooth.  E.g. if a device manufacturer desires to have devices only accept signed firmware updates then they implement logic to validate this at a higher level.  That would be agnostic to browsers and Web Bluetooth.

Nordic Device Firmware Update process is one example.  I'm privately aware of another manufacturer who I believe used https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Advanced_Encryption_Standard for sensitive data writes.
