Should not? I took the same logic as the one allowing usermounts.
It's a matter of policy though.

None of the security sysctls should be changeable at securelevel 1 or
higher. Certainly it should not be possible to grant additional privileges
to non-root users.  Is there logic somewhere else preventing it, like
in the relevant kauth listener perhaps?

None, the checks are simply not implemented in secmodel_securelevel(9). I'll have a look this evening.

This has to be done for each variable though depending on their use: in usermount/usersetaffinity cases, it's reasonable to deny additional rights to non-root users, but turning off these rights should still be permitted even when securelevel is set to 1+.
