I recently installed EOS adding Plasma. However, the login choice is only Plasma(X11) not Plasma(wayland). I have modeset=1 and I believe I have all the essentials for Wayland installed as follows:
EGLStream-based Wayland external platform
Library to create Wayland desktop components using the Layer Shell protocol
local/kwayland 5.93.0-2 (kf5)
Qt-style Client and Server library wrapper for the Wayland libraries
local/kwayland-integration 5.24.4-1 (plasma)
Provides integration plugins for various KDE frameworks for the wayland windowing system
local/kwayland-server 5.24.4-1 (plasma)
Wayland server components built on KDE Frameworks
local/layer-shell-qt 5.24.4-1 (plasma)
Qt component to allow applications to make use of the Wayland wl-layer-shell protocol
Video Acceleration (VA) API for Linux
Plasma Specific Protocols for Wayland
Plasma Wayland session
local/qt5-wayland 5.15.3+kde+r44-1 (qt qt5)
Provides APIs for Wayland
QML based X11 and Wayland display manager
Wallpaper tool for Wayland compositors
A computer display server protocol
Specifications of extended Wayland protocols
Wayland tools to display information about current compositor

Also appears to have a couple links farther down that may prove useful.
Hope this helps you get it working.
With no wayland, I do not have the option of choosing x11/wayland on the logon screen. I can duplicate your inxi ouput prior to a logout, and after installation there is a dropdown in the lower left for x11/wayland, with the default on x11 (which you see?).
Your output indicates that the 3 items KDE wants to install to use wayland. If you are not seeing the dropdown with the two choices, I would suggest
System->UpdateInTerminal from the menu or sudo pacman -Syu from a terminal
reboot your machine
If it is still not working come back with results, and anything else you may have tried.
Am I right that you are running the system on a laptop?
If so, then it could be an Nvidia hybrid issue upstream. Ubuntu had to delay their 22.04 release slightly, because Nvidia hybrid isn’t working on Wayland, so they had to put X11 back in as an option.
Thanks for those links! My Nvidia driver is the current driver 510. As to the same-name problem in the the second post, my Plasma xsession is called plasma.desktop vs. the waylandsessions called plasmawayland.desktop. They aren’t the same.
One additional clue is that the default GNOME desktop is x11. This should be wayland because the xsessions folder has gnome.desktop and gnome-xorg.desktop. Whatever is preventing wayland from showing for plasma is probably also preventing it for GNOME.
