This makes me a bit puzzled so I need to push back a bit
here.

What is this userspace and what interface is it using?

We recommend using the GPIO character device with
libgpiod for userspace applications:
https://www.kernel.org/doc/html/latest/driver-api/gpio/using-gpio.html

Is there any problem with this?

sysfs is deprecated for years now:
