That will very much depend on your brand and model of modules - for mine I used a Micron provided one; its either Bios (UEFI) or Linux based; it was quite finicky to get it to work though.
I should have some more comments in other threads

I tried to use ndctl 70.01 version to perform the update, but it did not show any character segments that support the update, the module use is MTA18ASF2G72PF1Z-2G6V21, can you share the relevant tools and firmware

Code:
root@ubuntu:~# ndctl activate-firmware all --dry-run
ACPI.NFIT: ndbus0: has no devices that support firmware update.
error activating firmware: Operation not supported

root@ubuntu:~# ndctl activate-firmware all
ACPI.NFIT: ndbus0: has no devices that support firmware update.
error activating firmware: Operation not supported

root@ubuntu:~# ndctl activate-firmware all --dry-run  --force
ACPI.NFIT: ndbus0: has no devices that support firmware update.
error activating firmware: Operation not supported

root@ubuntu:~# ndctl list -b all -BF
