Correct. But there are the GPIO controller DT nodes. That will
instantiate the GPIO DM interface. So you could use:

=> dm tree

to see the GPIO controllers listed (if enabled). And if you enable
the GPIO commands (CONFIG_CMD_GPIO) then you can e.g. do:

=> gpio status -a

to list all GPIOs and there status. If a board / driver claims a
GPIO (request_gpio) this should also be visible via this interface.
