Yup, it does[1], and when "whole_file" is true, it will call
security_kernel_post_read_file() with the buffer contents at the end.

Correct[2]; it has no file associated with it (same as the EFI platform
source).

> Which firmware is calling security_kernel_post_load_data()?

sysfs and platform both call it[2], matched with their
security_kernel_load_data() calls.
