I have a 3108 that provides the BL VPD. Surprised the 1883 doesn't.

As a rule of thumb, you need 12 Gbps SAS or 16 Gbps FC devices for the
VPD page to be present. The protocol feature is not tied to the
transport signaling speed in any way. But general support for the BL VPD
page roughly coincided with vendors introducing 12 Gbps SAS and 16 Gbps
FC products to the market.
