There is no need to, because it's the same module rtl88XXau present in Kali repos

rtl88XXau module is a combination of 3 drivers: rtl8812a + rtl8814a + rtl8821a

Yes there is.. rtl8812au is the 88XXau. I maintain the drivers and need the latest
to be pulled in order to have proper 5.17/5.18/5.19 support or else the driver will fail.

I successfully compiled rtl88XXau with kernel 5.17.11 and installed with DKMS

I don't know about 5.18 or 5.19, but if you believe it will fail in the next kernel version, then kali need to pull the latest version
