Seriously, Darkvision is "Like vision, but you don't need light". That's the only thing it do. It doesn't let you see through particles, it doesn't let you see through walls, it doesn't let you see through thin cloth, and it doesn't let you see once your eyeballs are scooped out.

Other traits can upgrade your vision to do that, all Darkvision does is upgrade your vision so you ignore low light penalties. If your player's conception of how his power works involves more than "I can see in the dark", then what he has is a meta-trait composed of more than one advantage.

OR they have Scanning Sense (Para-Radar; Magical, -10%) rather than Darkvision, which I'm getting the impression is what they think they have.

Yes. If the player doesn't want that, they need to get Protected Sense. Or again, swap out for Para-Radar.
