So found this on Amazon: Amazon.com: MJKOR [2021 New] Soft Paperfeel Damping Tips Replacement for Apple Pencil 1st Gen & 2nd Gen, Noise Reducing Pen Nibs for iPad Pro(2 PCS) : Electronics This is an actual tip that screws into place just like the original Apple tip would. It does have better friction on the glass. It does reduce the "tapping" sound of the pencil. It is not as much paper-like friction as the regular tip with a matte PaperFeel screen protector, but close and without the dulling effect on the beautiful screen. It is also worlds better than those silicon tip covers that tend to snag, drag, tear quickly and reduce precision. VERDICT: Solid A- minus and definite upgrade to the writing experience. FYI: I'm using it on an Apple Pencil 2 with the iPad Mini 6/Air/2021. If you use the search terms "pencil tips apple soft" in your browser, you will pull up several options - on Amazon and Aliexpress. The tips can also be classified as "2B" which I suppose is like the softer tips Microsoft offered in the replacement set with the first 3 generations of Surface Pens.
