I don't think it adds much confusion, I personally detached YT from the store only in the very beginning as I found it much easier to just turn of updates for YouTube individually by going to the YouTube site on Play Store, there tap the 3dot menu and deactivate automatic updates for this specific APP.
Sure it will suggest you from time to time to update YouTube and it will be permanently visible in your APP update list on Play Store but you can simply ignore it.
If it ever updates unintentionally just go back to the Play Store YouTube site and hit uninstall, this will get you back to vanced version, it will immediately work again!
Edit: For several weeks I tried all different approaches to detach YouTube from Store (magisk, direct zip, titanium backup) but it always failed at some point, which I usually only realized when YouTube got updated unintentionally because when the detach method fails automatic updates option is activated by default for YT, so I personally found it less annoying to simply turn off auto updates in Play Store and have it visible...
Of course it's up to you but from my experience all the detach mods are only limited functional, at least for, turning off auto updates works 100% reliable for me. Biggest challenge with this solution is that you'll however need to learn "to stand" the sight of a permanently outdated APP on your device lol - not for everyone, I know, especially when OCD kicks in...
