I think you are interpreting this wrong and that is where your
confusion is coming from. The flag is not for being "priviledged," as
in having an advantage or being superior, but for a user to be granted
priviledges, or specific rights. Users who can be granted priviledges
can do special things like own tickets or modify configurations, if
and only if you also assign those rights. Unpriviledged users can
never do those things.

Hope that clears things up for you.
