Zooming in on the Bloomberg animation showing the alleged malicious component in the Supermicro servers looks reasonable for the described attack. It is positioned on an unpopulated SOIC-8 SPI flash footprint between the SOIC-16 SPI flash chip and the BMC.
@1kevin335200 posted a high-res photo of the same 1.10 board (without any known implants) that has enough detail to follow the top copper traces. The eight pads of RM116/236/119/257 also appear connected to the SPI flash.
Supermicro seems to like to hedge their bets as to what flash package they're going to use. The unpopulated footprint works for either SOIC-8 or SOIC-16.
