Sorry, rtw88 is currently only in FreeBSD main (14-CURRENT) and not yet in
stable/13 (but hopefully will be soon).

The driver port didn't happen in time to be included in FreeBSD
13.1-RELEASE yet.

At the moment you would have to manually cherry-pick things if you do
not want to run a bleeding edge main.

Best changes are likely once I merge it to stable/13 to track that
until 13.2 will happen.

I haven't yet looked how hard it would be to add it (manually) to
13.1-RELEASE and recompile things but likely things have divereged too
much by now so that it'll be unfeasible.

For some more details please see:

Have a blessed weekend,
