In addition to what Fabian already mentioned:

The Kmods SIG does by now provide all packages it provides for Stream 9 
also for RHEL9. However, there is no easy way for you to enable the 
Kmods SIG's repositories on RHEL9 (yet) as SIGs can not (yet) provide 
centos-release-* packages for RHEL9 (and its clones) [1].

In case you want to use any package provided by the Kmods SIG for RHEL9 
you have to manually add its repositories for now, e.g. by copying [2] 
to /etc/yum.repos.d/centos-kmods.repo
Note that you also need to copy the Kmods SIG's GPG key [3] to 

We hope to be able to provide a centos-release-kmods package soon which 
should then allow you to consume the Kmods SIG's content after a simple
dnf install https://mirror.stream.centos.org/... command similar to how 
you can easily enable EPEL.
