[CentOS] password algorithm with authconfig vs authselect

In the old days I could do

# authconfig --passalgo=sha256 --update

With EL8 comes authselect now (replacement of authconfig).

authselect --passalgo=sha512 --update  does not work and
seems to be unsupported.

# grep -R passalgo /usr/lib/python3.6/site-packages/authselect/
  Option.UnsupportedValued ("passalgo", 

How does the new "way" looks like (>=EL8), to switch the password

Any hints would be great ...
