Is there any way to configure a Logitech Marble Mouse for scrolling in Wayland. In Xorg I can set up a libinput file with:

Section "InputClass"
 Identifier "Marble Mouse"
 MatchProduct "Logitech USB Trackball"
 Driver "libinput"
 Option "ScrollMethod" "button"
 Option "ScrollButton" "8"

and it does what I need, but I can't find any way to do this with Wayland.

gsettings set org.gnome.desktop.peripherals.trackball scroll-wheel-emulation-button 8

Running this as my user seems to give me what I need; that is, I can hold down the left, small mouse button and move the trackball up and down to get a scrollwheel effect. Good enough.
