One has to find it out first and add APT source or download manually.

Upgrade from Bullseye rsyslog breaks log rotating which one may not
notice immediatelly and if one decides to migrate from syslog-ng then
it even breaks daemon handling due to missing init script.

Nothing fatal I'd say but rather a bit uncomfortable.
