According to <https://www.cups.org/doc/admin.html>

The everywhere driver is used for nearly all modern networks printers sold 
since about 2009. For example, the following command creates a destination 
for a printer at IP address

lpadmin -p printername -E -v ipp:// -m everywhere

On a Fedora 35 machine, which should probably be pretty close to C8S, the 
lpadmin executable is provided by the standard cups rpm

$ rpm -qf $(which lpadmin)

Hope this helps,
