Switchdev not possible on Bluefield 2

Hello, as part of an evaluation process I am trying to configure an OVS Offload on a Bluefield-2 25GbE Card according to the following guide (specifically the guide linked under the section “Enabling OVS-DPDK Hardware Offload”):

However I am not able to configure the SwitchDev mode according to the section: " SwitchDev Configuration". Trying to do so results in an “Operation not permitted” response. Help regarding this configuration would be much appreciated.

Host OS version: CentOS stream 8 (kernel: 4.18.0-193.28.1.el8_2.x86_64)

Bluefield Info:
Type: Bluefield2
Name: MBF2H322A-AEEO_Ax_Bx
Description: BlueField-2 P-Series DPU 25GbE Dual-Port SFP56; PCIe Gen4 x8; Crypto Enabled; 8GB on-board DDR; 1GbE OOB management; HHHL

DPU no need configure switchdev, it enable and configured default.

Thanks for the clarification. I was not aware of that.
