Is this only available for Insider Build user?
Yes. Not available for normal versions
Clicking on the Power mode option in the Settings app opens a drop-down menu. Here, you’ll find two options: Plugged in and On battery. Since we tested it on a virtual machine, we only got the Plugged in option in the drop-down menu.

I ran into this issue when I got a Windows 11 laptop. On the Windows 10 school laptop I used to have, I could easily set it to battery save when on battery, and best performance when plugged on. When I got a Windows 11 laptop, I couldn't find a way to do that, so I had to download an app from the Microsoft Store called PowerPlanSwitcher that does that.
