Yes, hook is a different pod. If you want to share it with other
(regular app) pods you need persistent volume; not that I would
recommend this approach.

Likely there is a better solution like having directory structure and
other static layout baked into image and sharing configuration by using
e.g. configmap mounted into pods or by env vars.

possibly check
