Official Debian AMI on AWS

Hello Team
I'm contacting you to ask a few questions about Debian on AWS.

I want to install the official Debian distribution, but i am a bit confused about which distribution channels should i use.

From wiki (https://wiki.debian.org/Cloud/AmazonEC2Image/Bullseye) i found two methods to obtain the AMIs of Debian: - AWS Marketplace AMIs: https://aws.amazon.com/marketplace/seller-profile?id=4d4d4e5f-c474-49f2-8b18-94de9d43e2c0 (in the following: reseller).
- Community AMIs: by using your AWS account ID 136693071363.

I installed an AMI from the reseller and in the subscription email sent by AWS i read:
"* Debian 11  sold by Software in the Public Interest, Inc."
It's right?

I ask you:

- What is the official distribution channel of Debian? How do i find the official AMIs?

- What are the differences between reseller-released and community-released  AMIs? They are equal? Do they have different licensing terms?

- If the two distribution channels are the same why in Marketplace are there not the same versions/regions released and listed in the wiki? For example, i can't find the AMI for ARM64 in eu-south-1 using the reseller but i found it using your AWS accont ID.

I hope you may help me.
