Neovim loading plugins except color schemes

Sorry for the repeated questions but I can’t help myself with this one. While setting up neovim I noticed that plugins worked, but not color scheme plugins.

Here are some relevant files:

So I have a neovim overlay for getting the latest master and then to customize it. I checked this without the neovim-unwrapped override. I checked it on nixpkgs-unstable and -stable and in total went through 3 neovim versions – always with the same issue.

The command I run to use my custom env is nix-env -iA nixpkgs.userPkgs

So it works if I omit the part before the slash so papercolor-theme instead of NLKNguyen/papercolor-theme. I have no idea why that’s the case or if that’s documented somewhere

Sooooo some random rg bat and fd commands later, I now know that the vim-plugin-names are not the derivation names. And lo and behold, generated.nix contains all the derivation names.
