* Debian arm64 (incl. images from raspi.debian.net) uses the plain upstream linux kernel.
* The plain kernel 5.10 does not have the RPi POE driver.
* 5.14 and later have the RPi POE driver, but the debian kernels do not enable it (so far).

Solutions can be
(1) Compile the kernel by yourself, following https://www.debian.org/doc/manuals/debian-kernel-handbook/ch-common-tasks.html
It takes several hours but possible on RPi4.

(2) or file a bug report to the Debian linux source package requesting enablement of
As far as I can remember, a request of a new device driver into the kernel package
should verify working of that device driver with its corresponding device.
Unfortunately, I don't have POE so I cannot help with verification.
