It's not a valid reason to export them as GPL. Entire Linux source code
is licensed as GPL-2.0, so are you going to change all EXPORT_SYMBOL to

Please describe it better. Usually the symbols are exported as GPL if
they are considered tightly coupled with the kernel code. So tightly
that basically it is not a interface anymore but part of kernel
internals and therefore any usage of it is a derivative work of Linux
kernel. If this is the case here, please describe in commit msg why
these match this criteria.

Best regards,
