I would also be interested in seeing a solution as I have an F9 system with
encrypted / and /opt and when I do a clean install to the root partition (in
the near future) I will also be looking to have the previous encrypted /opt
partition mounted at boot.  In addition I would like to be able to set the
same password to unlock the /opt partition as for the / partition with a
single request for the one password during the boot process.

I suppose an alternative option would be to store the passphrase for the
/opt (or in your case the /home) partition in the root area and then do the
LuksOpen command from the last part of the startup scripts - that way you
can have different passphrases for the two partitions and open the non-root
partition once the root partition is open?
