PS5's engineer pretty much said the same thing on his Twitter. Once the old-gen is completely abandoned, mods devs will start writing the new code that would use the decompressor units instead of CPU for decompression.

Yeah, Well I think it's more down to the asset workflow (rather than code) and the need to re-encode all the assets for PS5 why its not being used when they have to have a PS4 version as well. With console/graphics card shortages we may be waiting a fair while until 3rd party devs really concentrate on the latest tech.
