It depends on how you define "to steer". Just to mention a file name or
any other non-free program isn't hardly "steering". And it seems that
this is also the view at the FSF. Otherwise PureOS wouldn't have been
endorsed in the first place.

As for ConnochaetOS: quite the opposite is true. Since the the kernel in
warns about possible non-free firmware it is leading users
away and discourages them from installing it.
