Debian 7 has 2.1.12.  Debian 8 has 2.2.5. And radmin works fine as
non-root in both.

I did a test install on Debian sid (same freeradius package as in Debian
8 "jessie"), just to verify right now.  This is using default Debian
configs, except for enabling the control socket:

frtest1:/etc/freeradius/sites-enabled# ln -s ../sites-available/control-socket 
frtest1:/etc/freeradius/sites-enabled# /etc/init.d/freeradius restart
[ ok ] Stopping FreeRADIUS daemon: freeradius.
[ ok ] Starting FreeRADIUS daemon: freeradius.

test at frtest1:~$ apt-cache policy freeradius
  Installed: 2.2.5+dfsg-0.2

OK, so your problems has nothing to do with any Debian packaging.
