The commaand has been executed on the server, the machine named coyote. The
machine of interest is bpi51, which gives

bpi51 is unable to the printer attributes from coyote.

Contrast that with a buster machine:

gene@sixty40:~$ lpoptions -p HLL2320D_coyote -l

This output would be expected on bpi51.
The only thing I don't see is its shared state? but it is.
So why can't another bullseye install use these printers? Buster machines
have 100% transparent access.

Because bpi51 is unable to get attributes from the server to form a PPD file
for HLL2320D_coyote. That is what needs sorting.

The question then becomes what is stopping it, A further clue, maybe, is the error log here that reports a lack of auth, but does not say from where. that precious little to go hunting for. Someone more familiar with cups might be able to make it spit out more specifics.

Thanks Brian.
