add extra files on deploy ASP Core web app using publish profile

So i have been struggling with this for a while now.
i used to be able to add file to my ASP .NET projects through publish profiles using the following customization


<!--Cutome entry to include custom DLLs-->
  <target name="CollectHelpers">
    <itemgroup>
      <_customfiles include="$(MSBuildProjectDirectory)\bin\Custom*.dll">
      <filesforpackagingfromproject include="%(_CustomFiles.Identity)">
        <destinationrelativepath>bin\%(RecursiveDir)%(Filename)%(Extension)</DestinationRelativePath>
</filesforpackagingfromproject>
    </_customfiles>
  </target>
  <target name="CollectCustomizations">
    <itemgroup>
      <_customfiles include="$(MSBuildProjectDirectory)\bin\*Custom*.dll">
      <filesforpackagingfromproject include="%(_CustomFiles.Identity)">
        <destinationrelativepath>bin\%(RecursiveDir)%(Filename)%(Extension</DestinationRelativePath>
      </filesforpackagingfromproject>
    </_customfiles>
  </target>
  <propertygroup>
    <copyallfilestosinglefolderforpackagedependson>
      CollectHelpers;
      CollectCustomizations;
      $(CopyAllFilesToSingleFolderForPackageDependsOn);
    </copyallfilestosinglefolderforpackagedependson>

    <copyallfilestosinglefolderformsdeploydependson>
      CollectHelpers;
      CollectCustomizations;
      $(CopyAllFilesToSingleFolderForMsdeployDependsOn);
    </copyallfilestosinglefolderformsdeploydependson>
  </propertygroup>
  <!--End of Custom entry-->

that's mentioned here.

however as i am developing my own first mobile-first ERP WorkNxt which i am using .NET Core for this wasn't working at all.

i searched high and low for any information that might mention any thing when it come to ASP Core web application but couldn't find any.
until i found this on Microsoft, and this did work!

although it's not clear on the document above but you have to insert something like

<ItemGroup>
    <_CustomFiles Include="$(OutDir)*Module*.dll" />
    <DotnetPublishFiles Include="@(_CustomFiles)">
      <DestinationRelativePath>%(RecursiveDir)%(Filename)%(Extension)</DestinationRelativePath>
    </DotnetPublishFiles>
 </ItemGroup>


just before </project> tag and you are done, now my web app deploy with the extra DLLs
