If you are using key authentication and the key is not in /mnt/dietpi_userdata , well... I suppose you see the issue.
FYI Samba is not part of any ecosystem.

Ah good point about the key, that would explain it. Although, I'd have expected the authentication to happen before the chroot :?.
Also I'm currently not sure if PermitTTY no breaks SFTP via WinSCP. It is no shell session, but still an interactive session.

Otherwise using the "/../../mnt/dietpi_userdata" path is a good alternative.
