That looks to be specific to converting a FreeBSD installer CD to memory 
stick... which of course is not needed any more.

The implications of trying to custom build an SSD firmware update image 
from a CD could be big, and it's really not something to experiment with 
unless you feel lucky.

aren't you supporting your users with a memory stick firmware update? 
Many people no longer have CD drives."

Practically speaking, that is not likely to result in a quick result, or 
possibly any result.  So use a program they recommend, or use an 
external CD drive to update the firmware.
