There is no such thing as a plumbing fitting which will screw
into the threads on clean out plug to extend the drain line...

Do this job properly with the correct type of fittings...

Actually that is not true.

There was an adapter sold at one time that did exactly that. I think I saw
it at an online plumbing specialty store just a year or so ago. The one I
removed from service went from a 4" CO to 2" female thread.

I do however agree that cleaning out the hub and using a rubber donut or
cutting the pipe and using a Fernco is the better approach.

I actually know of one installed in a basement bathroom where the
homeowner added a sink to a bathroom that previously only had a shower
and a toilet...and a clean out in the slab.

IIRC it took 2 reducers: a cast iron 4" OD to 3 1/2" ID (female) reducer
that screwed into the clean out, then a cast iron 3 1/2" OD to 2" ID
(female) that accepted a threaded PVC adapter into which a 2" PVC drain
pipe was glued.

I'm not sure why a rubber donut wasn't used.
