Are you referring to userland SELinux processing?  I think that the
userland patches are checking /selinux/enforce (via security_getenforce)
and acting accordingly, so that they also act "permissively" when the
kernel is in permissive mode.  Or are you referring to some aspect of
the kernel SELinux processing that is not governed by permissive mode?

If you are encountering denials in permissive mode, then I'd view that
as a bug; please report it.
