See below.

Move the define-minor-mode before the first use of the variable?

> +(defvar smie-highlight-matching-block-mode nil) ; Silence compiler warning

A forward declaration takes the form (defvar foo), not (defvar foo nil).

>  (defun smie-blink-matching-open ()
>    "Blink the matching opener when applicable.
>  This uses SMIE's tables and is expected to be placed on

I suggest you instead remove smie-blink-matching-open from
post-self-insert-hook (and refrain from adding it back) when enabling

> +(defvar smie-highlight-matching-block-timer nil)
> +(defvar-local smie-highlight-matching-block-overlay nil)
> +(defvar-local smie-highlight-matching-block-lastpos -1)

Please use the "smie--" prefix for such internal variables.

> +(define-minor-mode smie-highlight-matching-block-mode nil

Please provide a docstring.

> +  :global t :group 'smie

Don't bother with the ":group 'smie", it'll be added automatically anyway.

     (smie-highlight-matching-block-mode 1)
     (smie-highlight-matching-block-mode 1))

Will start 2 timers (and lose the reference to the first one, making
it harder to cancel).  Better structure minor mode bodies as "first
unconditionally turn it off, then turn it on is needed" to avoid
such problems.


     (smie-highlight-matching-block-mode -1)
     (smie-highlight-matching-block-mode -1))

will try to cancel an already canceled timer, so better reset the timer
var to nil after canceling.
