SOLVED: Surface Pro 3 Driver Firmware Packs Do Not Appear in WSUS Update Services

From your description, I understand that you want to know whether Surface Pro 3 firmware/driver packs can be deployed via WSUS. If I have misunderstood anything, please feel free to let me know.

Based on my research, I am sorry that WSUS does not suppport updating Firmware/Driver packs for Surface Pro 3. You can refer to this blog:
