This usually already shows that your printer is an IPP printer but does
not support driverless (IPP Everywhere or AirPrint) printing.

The Bonjour record does not even have a "pdl=..." field, so it seems to
be an older IPP version (1.0 or 1.1) and especially there is no
driverless printing. How old is this printer?

Due to the fact that it does not support driverless printing and it even
does not tell at all which page description languages (PDL) it supports,
cups-browsed is not able to automatically create a print queue for this
