A Long-Overdue Problem Coming for Some in Go 1.23 — Go's compiler has special directives to let you do various things including, in the case of go:linkname, accessing unexported variables/functions from other packages.

(If you want to know why a library might not allow access to certain things by default, Chris covers that here.)
