Please add -C, --directory=DIR to sha256/512sum with similar action as
in tar command:
Change to DIR before performing any operations.  This option is
order-sensitive, i.e. it affects all options that follow.

Second sentence about order-sensitive is optional, but will be very
useful sometimes.

You didn't say why this would be useful,
and I can't see the reason sorry.

Note the --chdir option to env(1),
which may suffice?

cheers,
