But is is not libftdi's place to solve this kind of problem. That is
what the module loading mechanism with modprobe, /etc/modprobe.d, et
cetera is for.

If I call a library function like ftdi_usb_open(), I would never expect
it to change my global system configuration. This is just not the Linux
way to do things.

libftdi - see for details.
