No, it lists no commands at all:

henk at swizzy:~-$ upscmd  -l snmp
Instant commands supported on UPS [snmp]:

henk at swizzy:~-$ 

Hence my initial question about any commands being available by the
way of the snmp driver.

No, but it asks for them, and I give the ones which i have in upsd.users:

henk at swizzy:~-$ upscmd snmp calibrate.start 
Username (henk): ****
Instant command failed: Instant command not supported
henk at swizzy:~-$
