Symbol visibility is useful knowledge for people dealing with the physical aspect of the software (like me). And I know for sure there is a large part of developers I personally deal with that don't know and never needed this information.

This matches my experience. The vast majority of C++ developers I worked with throughout my career did not know about this stuff, and they did not need to know about this stuff in order to get their job done.
