I'm scanning the transaction pool via txpool_content. However, for each pending / queued transaction, I only see they keys 'gas' and 'gasPrice'. How does one check what the maxPriorityFee is for each transaction? I saw in the go-ethereum github the transaction object is supposed to have a GasTipCap?

Just a reminder, not every transaction is type-2(EIP 1559) yet. So it might be the reason you do not see any.

The EIP 1559 is backward compatible, meaning that old legacy transactions still go through!
