Install_plugins capabilitiy

Apparently the install_plugins is removed when file modifications is disabled.
By default, file modifications are disabled, as plugins are managed by composer/VCS.
But some plugins check for the install_plugins capability, even for tasks that don’t involve changing (plugin) files, notably performing some database updates.
Is it possible to keep the install_plugins capability? Because from a logical standpoint, the admin still has this capability, just file modifications aren’t allowed.
