Is that legal for arriving passengers or is that a stair for staff that happens to be publicly accessible (badge protected door propped open or something like that)? Seems a bit weird that they would allow one to circumvent security like that, but then again it wouldn't surprise me at BRU.

Not every flight that arrives at the B-gates is coming from a developed country that has their airport screening in order, and climbing that stair could theoretically give access to US or Israel-bound flights without rescreening. The official line, as published on the website of the airport, is that you need to reclear security when transferring ex-Schengen to ex-Schengen.
