If the tools are designed to run in user space, what is the point of
indexing stuff that isn't accessible in user space?

To clarify the point that seems confusing as pointed out in your
question, on a Linspire system where the user is superuser, beagled
would clearly run as root. On a Fedora system where superuser login to
GUI is discouraged, beagle indexing everything for the superuser only
would be rather pointless.
