OK. Well, it should have wound up putting the file in place, I think. I
think it's not directly installed, but put in place by the %posttrans
script, which does this (from the current package):

rm -f /var/lib/rpm-state/kernel/installing_core_5.19.0-65.fc37.x86_64
/bin/kernel-install add 5.19.0-65.fc37.x86_64 /lib/modules/5.19.0-65.fc37.x86_64/vmlinuz || exit $?

did you get any scriptlet failures or anything?
