I want to generate a table of sites with GPS device conform position markers for field work and use the format 'Degree Minute with Suffix'. I see it is predefined in the 'Map Layout Grid' context to label map coordinates.

Map -> Grid -> 'Draw Coordinates' -> 'Degree Minute with Suffix'

Is there a possibility to use/access the grid labeling function for map grids within the field calculator context?

    Nope. You can use transform() and to_dms() in order to achieve the desired result.
