IHO, the information Howard Oakley provides on M1 Mac  https://eclecticlight.co/m1-macs  should be bookmarked on every M1 owner's web browser!

I’ve spent time reading Howard’s linked articles under the Recovery and Startup modes section https://eclecticlight.co/2020/11/28/startup-modes-for-m1-macs/  and until CCC (or other clone tool) is able to create a "true SSD cloned startup drive” and all else fails, the Recovery Mode or Fallback Recovery Mode looks like the best path to fixing a hard broke M1 OS. 
 
With Big Sur and beyond, the most important thing that must be backed up is the Data Volume!
 
I guess my underlining question is the what happens using the Recovery Mode or Fallback Recovery Mode on your Photos data if it was last used on a newer OS? I HOPE I never have to find out 😳
