can anyone help me figure out what is going on here? I'll look at it in the
morning, but still might not find it on my own.

SELinux is preventing /usr/lib/cups/filter/hpcups from search access on the
directory /var/lib/hp.

*****  Plugin catchall (100. confidence) suggests

If you believe that hpcups should be allowed search access on the hp
directory by default.
Then you should report this as a bug.
You can generate a local policy module to allow this access.
allow this access for now by executing:
# grep hpcups /var/log/audit/audit.log | audit2allow -M mypol
# semodule -i mypol.pp
