Sys upgrade reverts to generic instead of lowlatency kernel

Hello! I use Discover to alert me to upgrades, but even though I have no generic kernel headers, images or modules installed, the updates keep listing them anyway.

This time it's because of an upgrade from neon-desktop 4+p22.04+trelease+git20221202.1209 to 4+p22.04+trelease+git20230119.1929. But when I look at neon-desktop in Muon, it doesn't even list the generic kernel stuff as dependencies.

Since I am doing audio and video work on this system where responsiveness is crucial, I use linux-meta-lowlatency to try to install and update to the latest lowlatency kernel. Currently that's version 5.15.0-58.64.

I know that I could run the upgrade, reboot, and then uninstall the generic stuff, but that seems inelegant. Is there a way for me to tell the system to upgrade neon-desktop and use the lowlatency kernels instead, preventing it from prompting me to go generic every time?
