PDF does have modes for indexed CMYK.
And if the image only contained a few (<1000) colors, even expanding it to the full (non-indexed) channels should compress down to within a few percent of the indexed color image file.

But since there are apparently *zero* raster file formats that can contain indexed CMYK images, it's impractical to do any image manipulation on these bitmaps. Extracting them as full CMYK TIFFs swells them to 100-315 mb.
There are hundreds of raster file formats in the world so it would be wrong to claim that *none* of them can do what you want.
I see the value of what you want to do.
