So what was shipped in CentOS-8 matches what was shipped in RHEL-8.
Red Hat wanted to cut down the number of packages it would offer
different levels of support for so while packages are built they might
be shuffled into either BaseOS (strong support long lifetime),
AppStream (strong support short lifetime), Code Read Builder (no
support called PowerTools because Code Ready is a product line), and
not shipped.

so so docbook-dtds is in AppStream
docbook-utils is in  PowerTools

and docbook-utils-pdf is not shipped.

perl-tk is in PowerTools
btrfs is in the NotShipped
