USB connection recognized by HAOS but network interface not created

I am trying to write an integration but am encountering an issue with integrating a USB device into my Home Assistant setup running on HAOS. While the device is correctly recognized by the system (as confirmed by dmesg logs showing successful identification and driver loading for the USB2CAN device), HAOS does not automatically create a CAN network interface (e.g., can0 ). This contrasts with my experience on a separate system running Debian, where the device works as expected and the CAN interface is readily available and configurable.
This is probably because of a HAOS restriction but I am hoping there is a work around.
