Best way to make a contact with OpenSSH developers is probably this
mailing list or a bugzilla.

There is no way to add hooks into the stock sftp-server. But you can
create hooks directly to the filesystem using inotify (though I am not
sure about containers support).
Other possibility could be a script that is running after the client
disconnects (such as "ForceCommand internal-sftp;/usr/local/bin/fix-
modes.sh"), but in that case you would still have there an open window
with "bad" permissions.
