Why can't I add widgets on third-party launchers with Android 12

Star II
I just got a Zenfone 8, and I updated it to Android 12 ( I installed Nova Launcher, and I cannot widgets.
Looking at Nova's logs, I see:
java.lang.NullPointerException: Attempt to read from field '$ProviderId$' on a null object reference
So, it seems ASUS's Android 12 build is missing something from its settings app.
Does anyone else have an issue adding widgets? I tried Lawnchair and have the same issue. ASUS Launcher obviously works fine.
I should probably note that my phone is rooted, but that shouldn't matter, right?
