I had that issue recently, the way I sorted it was with gsettings/dconf:
gsettings set org.gnome.desktop.input-sources xkb-options "['ctrl:nocaps']"
I suspect this is what gnome-tweaks does. Actually as far as I know, Wayland still sources xkb files, it's not very much documented but I recall having found a few places suggesting that (I use stock F38 with Gnome and Wayland).
And thus see: man xkeyboard-config for a list of options which can be set, which is a bit wider than what gnome-tweaks propose.

Gnome tweaks has a simple solution to this.
Install Tweaks through "Software" or
dnf install gnome-tweaks
Run Tweaks and go to the "Keyboard and Mouse" section.
The 4th option down is an "Additional Layout options" button.
There are many things you can remap the CapsLock key to, like Esc, ctrl, or
my preference a Super key, since I usually use an IBM model M keyboard
which does not have one.
No need to revert back to X11, or any kind of hardware solution.

I'm running F38 with *Gnome/X-Wayland*, and in my environment I do not need (hate it) the *Caps Lock* key.Question: How to realize the disabling system wide, and how to get it working again?

(hmmm, much top-posting up there)
Since nobody else has mentioned this (apologies if this does not
address your needs, and you *really* hate the presence of the Caps-Lock
key), but most motherboard BIOS's have a setting for startup "numlock
state". I always set mine to "Disabled" and it keeps the unwanted Caps
keys away unless/until I explicitly (temporarily) enable them by hitting
the Caps-Lock key.
