Yes, there's no property for user groups; and yes, I would think it would require a separate extension to enable it.

To start, I would look in the code to see where user groups get saved, and see if there's a hook there you can register with (okay, I just did - it looks like "/includes/specials/SpecialUserrights.php" is the file, and 'UserRights' is the helpful hook). Your extension needs to have a function that registers with that hook, and adds and/or removes SMW values as necessary - see the SMWParseData class in the SMW code for the main class used to handle the data.

After a lot of searching documentation and possible extensions it has become
clear that there seems to be no such thing as a (special) property: user
group (or something like that). There also seems no way of retrieving such
information from either mediawiki or semantic mediawiki without devising an
extension.

The question I'm bothered with is: is it possible to (easily) implement such
a property or is the only way to go towards an extension? And if it is the
latter, could I be pointed in the fairly right direction to look, because
the extension (development) documentation is as vast as it is detailed.

Thanks in advance,
