Well for me the battery charging (bme daemon) and backlight control and blanking (dsme daemon) is part of power management. So this is not myth at all. Yes most things are in kernel but not all off them. Specifically management of Nokia proprietary chips (Retu, Tahvo) are done in userspace (bme,dsme,?) with kernel driver that mainly allows you to write specific hardware registers from userspace (without documenting those registers of course).
