Aren't there options for that in the keyboard preferences any more?  Is
gnome tweaks still around, does that offer anything?

Is there anything useful in here:

There's the brute force and ignorance method that many businesses do: 
pop the keycap off

The less ugly solution:  slide some hard spaghetti under it so it won't
press down.  Cut to the right length, they're not visible.

I've soldered buzzers across my caps lock lights (previously I replaced
the LEDs with super high brightness ones).  I can still use caps lock,
but I'm instantly warned that I've pressed the thing.  And being built
into the keyboard, it always works.  Yes, I know there's OS ways of
making it play an alert when caps lock is pressed (in disability
support), however the sound system doesn't come to life quick enough to
play the sound (and you have to have speakers).  I hate pulseaudio's
muting, likewise with its newer replacement, pipewire.  There used to
be a way to make the motherboard beeper fire off.
