Is libgazebo_ros_multicamera.so deprecated ?

I'd like to add a stereo camera to my robot.
I followed the Gazebo documentation and added a Multicamera sensor: https://classic.gazebosim.org/tutorials?tut=ros_gzplugins.
But when I launch Gazebo and add my robot, I get the following error: Failed to load plugin libgazebo_ros_multicamera.so.
So I checked if it was installed using locate libgazebo_ros_ and it turned out that it was not, there was only /opt/ros/foxy/lib/libgazebo_ros_camera.so.
I tried reinstalling ros-foxy-gazebo-ros-pkgs and building the package from the sources but the library is still missing.
Hence my question, is this lib (and part of the doc) deprecated ?
How I am suppose to add a stereo camera to my rover ? If I add two cameras will they be synchronized ?

I'm using ROS2 foxy and Gazebo 11
