This may be related to changes in Android 11 (API level 30).
Android doc about package visability

When an app targets Android 11 (API level 30) or higher and queries for information about the other apps that are installed on a device, the system filters this information by default. The limited package visibility reduces the number of apps that appear to be installed on a device, from your app's perspective.
