That's weird.  xfce4-power-manager should access directly /sys/class/backlight
stuff (via xfpm-power-backlight-helper), at least.  If changing the sysfs entry
directly works, it should work, too.

There seems to have had some breakage and got fixed in TW about
xfce4-power-manager (bsc#1202125).  Could you recheck?

If any, this must be an issue in user-space, not kernel.
