Wouldn't it make sense to use OOUI to build this form and use the UserInputWidget, an example usage is in HTMLUserTextField for HTMLForm (maybe you can manage to use HTMLForm?). Using mediawiki.userSuggest in a new change feels false. The goal is to use one way for autocompletion, see T85394: Use OOUI suggestions/autocompletion components only (instead of jquery.suggestions, jquery.ui.autocomplete).
