Older Siemens Panel-Which AFCI/GFCI breaker?

I have an older Siemens panel (I-T-E Load Center) and looking at the available AFCI/GFCI sold in big box stores and online, none match the breaker types that the label on the panel says can be used with it (types QP, QPH, HQP, QPF, and QPHF). All of the existing breakers in the panel are type QP.

Iíve checked Siemens website and the specs of a variety of their breakers and none mention any of these types. Am I ok with any of their breakers as long as they arenít the ďplug-onĒ style? Pics of the label in the panel are attached here. Any feedback would be greatly appreciated!

Chris

Here is an old UL letter saying Siemens QAF breakers are fine for ITE's showing QPF: https://forums.mikeholt.com/attachme...e-pdf.2371308/ I haven't seen anything for the dual function.
