Wireshark can't pick up EAPOL packets from my adapter

After starting wireshark I go to the capture options, make sure that promiscuous mode is enabled and start capturing from the WiFi adapter. I also make sure I have the password entered in the decryption keys menu. I can only see packets either directed at my device or broadcasted. After restarting the device I want to sniff, and filtering the packets with eapol, I get 0 results. What could be the reason? Do I need any additional setup?

Hardware and software:
Wireshark 3.2.7
Linux Manjaro 5.9
WiFi adapter TP-Link TL-WN772N with a AR9271 chipset, driver ath9k_htc
