There are scrum masters and release train engineers in Agile which function very similarly to PMs.

Extremely leery of almost any major project without someone designated to manage it somehow

In agile you have Scrum Masters sure. You have have Product Owners and then lastly Product Managers. It's a shift in terminology but it's all within the realm of PMO. It's just built to be more fluid and in theory to execute and learn from mistakes quickly

Projects and Products are two different things. Project managers are still needed for projects.
