Profiling a MacBook Pro

Hey guys. So, just getting back into photography, and also new to Macs. I have a MacBook Pro (2023). I pulled out my xrite i1 Display Studio and downloaded the software from Calibrite. I then paid their nominal fee to upgrade the software. I ran the calibration and saved it. Now, where do I find it? When I look at the display properties, it says it's using the Apple XDR Display P3-1600 nits preset. When I drop that menu down, the profile that I saved does not appear. Doing a bit of online research, I went to Library and ColorSync, no joy there. If I go to the display properties of one of my connected ASUS monitors, the saved profile is available there. If on the notebook display properties and I change to a different profile and then back, the display is obviously unprofiled again. Any idea on how to keep the saved profile (wherever it may land) on the MacBook display? I feel like there is something easy that I'm missing.
I have a 2020 M1 MacBook Pro and I also upgraded my X-Rite i1 to the latest Calibrite software a few months ago.

At the time, I was using macOS Monterey, and it stored the profile in ~Library/ColorSync/Profiles. I've since updated my macOS to Sonoma, but the Displays panel in the new System Settings app still has it selected at that location, and I've verified that the profile is stored there.

Sorry if that's not a helpful response. Maybe see if there is a newer version of the Calibrite PROFILER app and try calibrating again.
