Capture hooks should be the right place to do what your want. I
recommend org-capture-before-finalize-hook since it will not run if you
abort the capture for any reason. Otherwise, you may attach the file,
abort capture (via C-c C-k or because of some error), and your attached
file will hang somewhere unreferenced. Your first idea with
%()-expansion have the same problem.

I recommend using doct [1] with :before-finalize keyword. It will take
care that your function runs for the right template.

You are right, template expansion is done in separate "*Capture*" buffer
using org-capture-fill-template. The buffer is not associated with any
