It returns a data grid showing all the spatial layers.

The strange thing was that it had been uninstalled. I removed the rogue 
connection in PgAdmin 4 and it fixed the problem.

In my new instance I created a database for each of the backup 
databases, execute "create extension postgis" for all of them, then 
restored the original data from the backups successfully. I am still 
getting this in qGIS logs...

2022-09-29T14:38:36     WARNING No PostGIS support in the database.

2022-09-29T14:38:36     WARNING Database connection was successful, but 
the accessible tables could not be determined.
