How to search all packages for a file

I don't know how to search opkg for a package providing numfmt. I searched by name and found it but I want to search inside packages because the search term might not appear in the name too.

As far as I know that is not possible, as there is no local database of the contents of the packages. To know the content, you'll have to download and extract it.
