I created a wordpress block and it guides me to the official documentation and it came to work as an external plugin, taking into account the architecture of block.json for its use, however it has not worked for me when the block is required to be integrated into a theme, delivery wrong path request looking in plugin folder plus adding another path.

I think this is working as designed, with the design being that themes should not supply blocks since they can be switched at any time, even programmatically.

This issue was also reported in #54647, but by [53091] I believe the asset path is now resolved when the block is registered on the theme.

I think this ticket can be closed.
