This seems like a Chrome bug report? As such, I don't think it applies here.

The reason that extensions in Chrome cannot call Webauthn is because they don't have standard domains, and WebAuthn is based around RP IDs. Chrome does not have any plans to change this at the moment and it's not clear how extensions could be mapped into WebAuthn's RP ID space.

You might want to open a Chrome bug on this, but I don't think it would be considered in the near team.
