How to install packages with the 3 DVD set?

How to install packages with the 3 DVD set?
Where is the list of the 3 DVD content for Buster?
I downloaded the 3 DVD set and installed Debian with them offline.
sources.list, 3 lines:
deb cdrom:[Debian GNU/Linro.bi.deb10ux 10.2.0 _Buster_ - Official amd64 DVD Binary-1&2&3...
Could not find the list for Buster, so I read in:
debian-9.0.0-amd64-xfce-CD-1.list
Tried with this package as an example: xfce4-clipman_1.4.1-1_amd64.deb
sudo apt remove xfce4-clipman
sudo apt install xfce4-clipman
E: Package 'xfce4-clipman' has no installation candidate
Where are the instructions to install the packages with the 3 DVD set?
Where is the ...amd64-xfce-CD-1.list files that list the content of the 3 DVD set for Buster?

Only the first DVD is bootable. The second and third DVDs are only Repositories of additional packages.

So install from the first DVD only. If you need to add additional packages it should tell you to install another DVD.

It is not usual to add every package because you will end up with a whole load of stuff you don't want/use/need and packages will go out of date - to be updated online.

Contents of DVDs are e.g. here https://mirrors.ocf.berkeley.edu/debian ... /list-dvd/

Read the instructions on the download page: https://cdimage.debian.org/debian-cd/current/amd64/bt-dvd/

Or here if you don't use bittorrent: https://cdimage.debian.org/debian-cd/current/amd64/iso-dvd/

Debian Buster is already installed.
I want to install extra packages from the 3 set DVDs.
Is this the suggestion?
sources.list pointing to: deb cdrom:...
Boot from DVD-1
In Debian Installer Main Menu,
What option should I choose?
1- Detect and mount CD-ROM
2- Load Installer components from CD

apt-cdrom is used to add a new CD-ROM to APT's list of available sources.
My sources.list is already pointing to the 3 DVD.

Sorry, the information I posted wasn't what you were looking for.

But, I am happy that I learned something new today!
