Well, according to 
you are supposed to be able to do:

# dnf module provides log4j12
Updating Subscription Management repositories.

Module  : javapackages-tools:201801:820181217165704:dca7b4a4:x86_64
Repo    : codeready-builder-for-rhel-8-x86_64-rpms
Summary : Tools and macros for Java packaging support

But on EL8.1 and earlier this only works if the module is already 
enabled, which isn't much help.

So for this package you need to do:

# dnf module enable javapackages-tools
# dnf install log4j12
