Looks like one of the adapters that RH dropped support for in el8. You may need to ask ELRepo if they can provide a kmod for it. They do have a kmod-sky2 already but I don't think it supports your particular card.

What's the output from lspci -nn | grep -i net

The ls-pci output is
03:04.0 Ethernet controller [0200]: Marvell Technology Group Ltd. 88E8001 Gigabit Ethernet Controller [11ab:4320] (rev 13)
The kernel 5.10.14-1.el8.elrepo.x86_64 have this module.
But I did not found it in the kernel 4.18.0-240.10.1.el8_3.x86_64 and 4.18.0-240.10.1.el8_3.centos.plus.x86_64

As I said, it looks like it's been dropped by Red Hat.
