As for modifying Far Cry 4, this thread's topic is more about (unpacking) Far Cry Primal, and specifically its models. Far Cry 4 is only referenced because the games are so much alike, filesystem-wise.
If you're looking for modding the FC4 editor and game, the forum I linked previously is a good place to start. Fino, Janne and Predaator have some nice mods, adding (Far Cry 3 based) objects to the Far Cry 4 editor. We're pushing the limits of custom maps even further. Perhaps one day we can add models and animations to the game, but for now we're reusing assets from the vanilla game to make sure everyone can play the maps that we're making.
The 'Selected Objects Export/Import' does not export models from the game to 3D software, but merely allows for saving object placement data in maps from one FC editor to another. For example, see Fino's thread and understand that the 'models' used in those screenshots are not newly created/imported models, but instead constructed in the FC4 editor itself by placing many individual other objects together in the map to appear as new object.
