/etc/shutdown.allow needs to have your user's name in it for that user

/etc/shutdown.deny can have user names in it too, and those will not be
allowed to shut the system down.

I tried that on Buster.

~$ /sbin/shutdown -r now
Failed to set wall message, ignoring: Interactive authentication required.
