limited to "matrices" from "dcraw" for a long time
comes from? Someone makes a target chart shot and then uses profiling
software to obtain the matrix.
Quoting from the dcraw c-code just above the adobe_coeff table ("otherwise
noted" mostly refers to profiles made from target shots submitted by users
to the dcraw dev):
All matrices are from Adobe DNG Converter unless otherwise noted.
void CLASS adobe_coeff (const char *t_make, const char *t_model)
So except for the RT camera input profiles made by RT users (and devs (and
darktable profiles made by darktable users and devs, and so forth), it
looks like RT profiles (and profiles from any raw processor that uses dcraw
to decode the raw files) in fact do use matrices contained in the dcraw

But many people do make and use (and like much more than the adobe_coeff
table matrices) their own general purpose camera input profiles. There are
decent commercially available target charts available. Daylight and direct
sunlight do make nice full-spectrum light sources even if the light isn't
"exactly" D50. The procedures aren't that difficult to follow. You don't
need to break the bank buying specialized lighting and laboratory setups
just to make a general purpose camera input profile.
