I saw many firmware files in /lib/firmware.

Do we need to load it manually or will OS auto load it if it sees a corresponding device?

I take it you’re talking about a Linux system. If so, you don’t need to load anything manually, the device drivers will arrange for the appropriate firmware to be loaded (if it’s available).
