I thought you had uninstalled cups-browsed from the bullseye machines.
Are the printers that you can't see actually on the network, or are
they connected to a specific machine (I didn't understand their being
"shared"). It was worrying that you said that one machine worked when
using the IP address but not its FQDN. (Actually, I've always thought
it misguided that that host, coyote, has the same name as the network.)
