This sounds like you might have missed the wiki step "Add qnoc-sc8280xp
module to initramfs":

OK then once you chroot into the installed system you should be able to
check if qnoc-sc8280xp is in /etc/initramfs-tools/modules. If not,

 echo qnoc-sc8280xp >> /etc/initramfs-tools/modules
 update-initramfs -u -k all

To triple-check that the needed module is in there:

 zstdcat /initrd.img | cpio -itv | grep qnoc-sc8280xp.ko

In any case, the daily netinst image should now work! There's no need to
manually copy any firmware and similar shenanigans. If you have the
time, please follow the InstallingDebianOn/Thinkpad/X13s page again from
the begingging to the end (quite a few things have changed) and let me
know if that works for you.
