From experience I can say that many (non-ceramic) RF materials are
rather soft (most common a mix of PTFE and glass fiber reinforcement)
In the designs that I worked on , we therefore created 4-layer PCBs with
a core consisting of more rigid material (most times FR4).
Another mix of materials might be PCBs with a solid metal backing used
for cooling applications (think LED lighting, motor drivers, etc.).
And another application for mixed materials are flex-rigid PCBs.
While the different PCBs types are not explained in detail, the brochure
from Optiprint has some photos of complex designs:
