I've installed 3.3 and opened it a number of times. I also added a plugin. This means that the 'Install settings from a previous version' option is now missing from the splash screen. I can't find an option to import settings in the preferences menu either.

I could just copy and drop the userpref.blend file from 3.0 to 3.3 but that doesn't seem wise, as there could be changes that might cause problems.

What should I do?

After searching every menu, it seems that there is no option for importing preference settings after it expires from the splash screen.

Instead I had to delete the userpref.blend file from my Mac.

This can be found by selecting GO from the finder and holding down the 'option' key so that 'Library' appears.

Under 'Library' goto 'Blender' (version) 'config' folder and delete the userpref.blend file.

Then restart Blender. This resets the splash screen so 'import settings from previous version' can now be selected.
