lsusb is part of usbutils, so it is not explicitly listed, but should be included in your image
Oh, I think the cleanall didn't wipe the cache sufficiently, after I deleted contents in sstate-cache/ I get the following:
$ tar -tvf path/to/myimage-20221224185313.rootfs.tar.gz  | grep lsusb
lrwxrwxrwx 0/0               0 2018-03-09 04:34 ./usr/bin/lsusb -> /usr/bin/lsusb.usbutils

I would expect "$ lsusb" to work now when I copy this to my board (cannot est right now)
the package.manifest however still only lists:
The package.manifest only contains packages so it's normal that lsusb does not appear there since there's no package *named* lsusb.

E.g. there's no lsusb package in Debian, but you can install it on your system via the usbutils package.

However, one can check which package provides the libusb binary by running
oe-pkgdata-util find-path '*/libusb'
it should return usbutils I believe.
