I have been using kuberentes lense and noticed under the cluster settings page an optional package called "user mode". Does anybody know what this means?

I have not used it, but the description in your image is understandable. It is adding RBAC (user permission) so that any user (also non-admins) can list namespaces (e.g. see all namespaces that exists within the cluster).

But it should not mean more than that, e.g. a user can not create a Deployment in a namespace he is not granted to.
