Comment (by gziolo):

 > When a plugin provides a custom path to the translations folder,
 example: languages, it doesn't get passed to wp_set_script_translations
 called inside the register_block_script_handle helper function.

 I added a new patch that allows setting the equivalent of
 internationalize-your-plugin/#domain-path Domain Path] like for the
 plugin. Exactly the same rules apply:

 > The domain path defines the location for a plugin’s translation. This
 has a few uses, notably so that WordPress knows where to find the
 translation even when the plugin is disabled. This defaults to the folder
 in which your plugin is found.
 > For example, if the translation is located in a folder called languages
 within your plugin, then the Domain Path is `/languages` and must be
 written with the first slash.

 "textdomain": "my-plugin",
 "domainpath" "/languages",

 We will have to include similar documentation in Gutenberg in
 /block-api/block-metadata.md with the note that this API is available
 starting from WordPress 6.0.
