Opkg install failed on custom snapshot

On my S1500NBN (MediaTek7621) device, I installed a snapshot build kindly assembled by community members. Snapshot is based on the 5.15.35 kernel

When I try to opkg install kmod-usb-net-rndis package, I get errors.
Same similar errors sometimes occur when installing other packages.
Guys, can you tell me how often packages are reassembled for new kernels in the snapshots repository?

root@OpenWrt:~# opkg install kmod-usb-net-rndis
Unknown package 'kmod-usb-net-rndis'.

because modules are kernel dependent, you have to use the modules from that same build.

official snapshots and modules are refreshed on a daily basis.

probably doesn't work on builds provided by community members though ...

Maybe that info should be a pinned topic.

Comes up frequently.
