However digging deeper (https://www.virtualbox.org/wiki/Downloads) we

   Support for USB 2.0 and USB 3.0 devices, VirtualBox RDP, disk
   encryption, NVMe and PXE boot for Intel cards. See this chapter from
   the User Manual for an introduction to this Extension Pack. The
   Extension Pack binaries are released under the VirtualBox Personal
   Use and Evaluation License (PUEL). Please install the same version
   extension pack as your installed version of VirtualBox.

IIRC from when I used to use VB (I now use KVM/QEMU) the RPMfusion
version doesn't include the extension pack, but I may have it the wrong
