Hi @zaphod, you are not the only one)
I was struggling an hour until I found this post.
I don’t understand why they did so.
For example, I want to have a folder called “acf-block-json” in my plugin, and have all the block json files within it. I don’t like the template rendering, so I don’t have a file/folder structure for block templates. Instead, I have all the blocks as HTML rendering functions.
Now, with this limitation, I can’t achieve that. But I think the limiation comes fro WP itself.
