not well, since drivers like this need to be compiled for a specific kernel, the same sort of portability doesnt apply..
better off with a module..

or any place you want...
this is pretty much the point of appimages or modules for that matter, once you close it(or deactivate it) its gone.. its only bloat if you're not using it(imo)
for example i just downloaded the latest krita https://krita.org/item/krita-3-0-released/
and am running it on a system that has no qt5 or kf5 or<long list of deps>
they are by no means a replacement for distro repos or porteus modules/bundles
can be handy for trying out/using otherwise tricky to <compile/get dependencies for> software
it does amuse me how the Linux community gives applications odd names
the're named by their developers usually... and blenders' creator develops on a mac ... the name btw comes from this song http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aaZTSDfT1o4
