It depends on your base container image, shell type and the exact commands you want to have auto completion for. But suppose you want to have basic bash auto completion on the ubi image, you should install at least the 'bash-completion' package.

I don't see why not. The thing is, anything you install in a container will be gone after it's restarted. Installing extra CLI tools inside a container makes little sense, unless you make it a part of the container image definition (which is contrary to the best practices of building containers).

Installing bash-autocompletion in the exam workstation terminal, will not change anything at all about what's available inside the container environment.
