libnss3 on SparkyLinux 6.4 ISO confuses install of WineHQ packages

I suppose this is a bug report of sorts, addressing a problem that I dealt with here:

I tried to install the Wine .debs from the WineHQ repos, which led to the "apt" command complaining about broken packages. It turns out that the package that caused the trouble was the libnss3 2:3.67-2 amd64 package installed from the SparkyLinux ISO.

To be more precise, the problem was that the Wine packages needed both the i386 and amd64 binaries of libnss3, and they both needed to be the exact same version, but the only version of i386 libnss3 available from the repositories was 2:3.61-1+deb11u2. Since apt couldn't find the packages it needed, it wailed and gnashed its teeth. The solution for making apt happy turned out to be to downgrade the amd64 libnss3 package to version 2:3.61-1+deb11u2.

What I find odd is that it seems like libnss3 2:3.67-2 was included on the SparkyLinux stable ISO for amd64 computers, but I couldn't find it in the SparkyLinux repos.
