This is what I was confused about:

    Yes, until RHEL 8.5 the latest-and-greatest virt packages used to be
    shipped within Advanced Virtualization. But since AV packages are part of
    RHEL now, there's no need for updating the SIG anymore because RHEL has
    the most updated packages

So, it seems that the latest-and-greated virt packages are still a part of the
RHEL Advanced Virtualization 8 product and *not* a part of RHEL8 proper
(though there are versions in the base product) as stated above?
