It’s just on the DB app because it does have all public transport in Germany. That doesn’t mean your railpass is valid. It isn’t. A ticket for the bus is 8,20 €.

Until 2020, DB had an IC bus service that has been included; maybe you did read about that one. The only bus service in Germany that is included right now is when it is a rail replacement bus service (in german “Schienenersatzverkehr”). But no “normal” public bus service.

One thing that really is misleading: Every time the DB app can’t get a price it is recommending anything else (even if it doesn’t make any sense), here an Interrail pass (or a Deutschland-Ticket for 49 € just for the bus part). But unfortunately in your case your railpass is just valid for the train part of the trip.
