Scrolling in the Linux console

In most distros I remember being able to Shift+Page{Up|Down} in the Linux console. In my NixOS these don’t seem to do anything.

I’ve been digging around but haven’t been able to figure out where this is configured. My best guess is Kconfig, but I wasn’t able to confirm this. Does anyone happen to know, please?

According to a StackOverflow post scrolling support was dropped in Linux v5.9+.
