In Firebird 3 and earlier there is nothing you can do to get those
privileges by default, except granting the privileges directly to the
user, or to the role PUBLIC (but then all users get those privileges).
You will need to explicitly specify the role on connect for the user to
get those privileges.

Firebird 4 adds an option to grant a role as a default role, which means
the granted privileges will always be applied.

Not yet.
