I tried to run kpartx as a normal user. Unsurprisingly, this failed, but the error message contained some garbage:

$ /sbin/kpartx -l /dev/zero
/dev/mapper/control: open failed: Permission denied
Failure to communicate with kernel device-mapper driver.
Incompatible libdevmapper đÄG÷ and kernel driver
last_lba(): I don't know how to handle files with mode 21b6
