That is similar to what happens in some GPON-ONT SFPs, some run a full small Linux distribution like OpenWrt inside.... though for ethernet that is unexpected.
This is also similar to SFP VDSL "modems" which likely run their own embedded OS as well inside the SFP package (at a time there was even a PCI VDSL2 "modem" that was actually running its own embedded system on the PCI board, IIRC, it pretended to the main computer to be an ethernet NIC).
