You need to rebuild the packages:

$ git clone git.launchpad.net/~ubuntu-kernel-test/ubuntu/+source/linux/+git/mainline-crack
$ cd mainline-crack
$ git checkout cod/mainline/v5.18.2
$ fakeroot debian/rules clean
$ dpkg-checkbuilddeps
$ fakeroot debian/rules do_linux_tools=true binary-generic

This will build the kernel and modules and tools so will take quite a bit of time.

No. We do not auto-build that package for mainline kernels.
