That's not really correct. An account that is a member of the
Administrators local group (localized name can be different, SID is
S-1-5-32-544) is a root/superuser equivalent.
It is true that some objects have permissions that prevent Administrators
from accessing them, but any member of Administrators can take
ownership/change permissions/run as SYSTEM and access those objects.
