This is true for Linux on Z.   Not for z/OS.

Subject: Install z/OS from DVD

We are setting up a z/Next mainframe on a greenfield site and want to be able 
to install z/OS from a DVD.
Back in 2016, Mark Post said..
“Coming soon will be the ability to IPL _and_ install directly from the HMC DVD 
drive.  It'll be a slow as !@$$ but it won't require an installation server 
somewhere.  You'll still need to connect _into_ the system over the network to 
complete the install (via SSH or VNC) of course.  Even that could be avoided if 
you set up a custom DVD that points to an autoinst.xml file on the DVD itself 
and use VNC as the installation method.  Completely unattended install without 
a net. :)”

Has ‘soon’ arrived yet? Or are we still looking at using a Customised Offering 
Driver?

Regards and thanks
Paul
