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to add every package because you will end up with a whole load of stuff you don't want/use/need and packages will go out of date - to be updated online.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

This is how I could install an extra package from the 3DVD sets. Here for an example, I use the “Clipman” package ( uninstalled first...) from the DVD-1:
debian-9.0.0-amd64-xfce-CD-1.list
From what DVD? A fellow above give the address to find the 3 .list files.
To check if the package is available:
sudo apt update
sudo apt search clipman
File manager Thunar: left click on cdrom to open terminal;
I have this path and use the find command:
/media/cdrom0$ find . -type f -iname "*clipman*"
2 results from the DVD no1:
./pool/main/x/xfce4-clipman-plugin/xfce4-clipman-plugin_1.4.3-1_amd64.deb
./pool/main/x/xfce4-clipman-plugin/xfce4-clipman_1.4.3-1_amd64.deb
Copy this package on the drive:
xfce4-taskmanager_1.2.2-1_amd64.deb
Then:
sudo apt install ./xfce4-clipman-plugin_1.4.3-1_amd64.deb
Voilà!
Could you suggest a more elegant way to do it?

You should be able to install it directly from the DVD without copying first if your sources are correct. But a more elegant way would be to install it from the online Debian repositories. Plus software on the DVDs may get outdated eventually whereas the online repos always have the latest available versions.
