Stuck installing the USB core utilities on x86-64

Clean install: openwrt-23.05.3-x86-64-generic-ext4-combined-efi.img.gz
On PC with Intel(R) Core(TM) i5-6500T CPU @ 2.50GHz / 8GB / 256GB SSD
Trying to add UGREEN USB 3.0 Gigabit Ethernet Adapter.
Already stuck installing the USB core utilities.

# opkg update
# opkg install kmod-usb-core
# insmod usbcore
Failed to find usbcore. Maybe it is a built in module ?
# opkg list-installed *usb*
kmod-usb-core - 5.15.150-1

Same issue with version 23.05.2
I suspect I am overlooking something basic.
Anyone that can give me some clues?

what does lsmod say ?

Already installed.
Light bulb lit up :wink: needed to install the usbutils ... duh.

# opkg install usbutils
# lsusb 
found: ASIX AX88179A
# opkg install kmod-usb-net-asix-ax88179
