Just ran into this myself, try this:
$ sudo dnf install NetworkManager-libreswan-gnome

The error output of gnome-control-center NetworkManager applet is poor (needs extending IMHO), but nm-connection-editor showed what the issue was.


$ sudo dnf install NetworkManager-libreswan

$ nm-connection-editor
# Add IPsec Based VPN

# Could not create connection
# Could not load editor VPN plugin for "org.freedesktop.NetworkManager.libreswan" (missing plugin file "/usr/lib64/NetworkManager/libnm-vpn-plugin-libreswan-editor.so").

$ gnome-control-center
# Network -> Add "IPsec based VPN"

# (Error: Unable to load VPN connection editor)

$ dnf whatprovides /usr/lib64/NetworkManager/libnm-vpn-plugin-libreswan-editor.so

$ sudo dnf install NetworkManager-libreswan-gnome

# Works OK
