Netlify Large Media (LFS) files not available in Functions

I am trying to use files from Netlify Large Media in a Lambda Function. I have included the paths using the included_files field in netlify.toml but only the pointer files are being included not the actual files store in NLM. How can I locally (not through a url) access the files in NLM from a Lambda Function?

Yes, because that’s what is stored in your Git repo.

You cannot. You’d have to request it using fetch or something.
