Does dropping a AIFF sound file in ~Library/Sounds/ make it available on 
the Sound menu of the Counters preferences pane?

That (which is how MacOS custom alert sounds have been added since 
forever) works on Mojave. If they've broken it in Big Sur, that would be 
yet another reason to delay "upgrading."
