I have had the odd issue, quite repeatable (and confirmed by at least
one other person), where the ethernet on the usb-c docking station (and
various other functions) only work with the usb-c connector is in one
particular orientation; because USB-C isn't *supposed* to require a
particular orientation there's no obvious marking which side is which,
so I have to find it pretty much by trial and error... someday I'll get
clever and mark it when I find the working orientation.

Fairly late in the bullseye release cycle several things got fixed for
the Pinebook Pro; might be worth trying again if you haven't tried

live well,
