It was revealed it’s a β€œWLED” screen not an β€œOLED” screen we are interested in. Hope can be found in this Linux Kernel Proposed Update message:

WLED driver provides the interface to the display driver to adjust the
brightness of the display backlight. This driver exposes two APIs to
set and get the brightness of the display backlight through the
backlight framework. This driver has the support to handle the OVP
(over voltage protection) and the SC (short circuit protection)
interrupts. It also has the auto calibration algorithm support to
configure the right strings if the user specified string configuration
is in-correct.

Original Answer

Although not an answer hoped for this Arch Linux article states:

It may be helpful to know that OLED displays by their nature do not
have backlight.

The only solution therefor is to use something like this:

$ xrandr --output eDP1 --brightness .5
