This was indeed discussed on a recent call.  You'll find a reference to it in the April 20, 2023

A colleague at another company asked me about the acceptability of FIPS 140-3 and its acceptability for the CSBRs, namely whether “FIPS 140-3 level 2” should be interpreted as being “at least FIPS 140-2 level 2”.  This is especially relevant now that it is no longer possible to obtain a new FIPS 140-2 certification.

I think we discussed it at some point, but couldn’t find any information in a quick search.

I can’t imagine any reason why the answer isn’t “YES”, but I wanted to check if anyone else had a different opinion.
