No, nothing is wrong, this is how kernel sources are distributed. They
are made to be used by root. To use them as plain user you have to
previously chown or chmod the entire tree, and this is not documented.
In this case no, the kernel source is only read from not written too,
it's the makefile using the file system in /usr/lib/kernel-coverage. The
program can be run all as a user thus;
set -- /usr/lib/kernel-coverage/*
cp -r "$@" ~/coverage
