It should definitively "just work", however there are caveats:

* It relies on the $CHROMIUM_EXTENSION_DIRECTORY variable, which is
  automatically configured by Guix when you install both packages; but
  you may need to log out and in again for it to take effect.
* If you have a previous ~/.config/chromium directory from the (googled)
  Chromium laying around, there may be strange interactions.

You can avoid both caveats by running:

  guix shell {ungoogled,ublock-origin}-chromium -- \
    chromium --user-data-dir=/tmp/chromium-profile

Does the extension show up then?

Updating has since been fixed.  :-)
