SQL Server Reporting Services bug: Invalid DCOM configuration

After installing SQL Server 2022 Enterprise, including SSRS, my Windows event log is full of these warnings:

<Event xmlns="http://schemas.microsoft.com/win/2004/08/events/event">

  <Data Name="param10">Not Available</Data> 
  <Data Name="param11">Not Available</Data> 
The machine-default permission settings do not grant Local Activation permission for the
COM Server application with CLSID {000C101C-0000-0000-C000-000000000046} and APPID
{000C101C-0000-0000-C000-000000000046} to the user NT SERVICE\SQLServerReportingServices SID
(S-1-5-80-4050220999-2730734961-1537482082-**********-379003301) from address LocalHost
(Using LRPC) running in the application container Not Available SID (Not Available).
This security permission can be modified using the Component Services administrative tool.

How can I get rid of these warnings? What do they mean?
