    It sounds like the user may be in a Windows Protected Group. Which could be
    any one of the following:

    Windows 2000
    Enterprise Admins
    Schema Admins
    Domain Admins

    For Windows 2000 SP4 or Windows 2003
    Account Operators
    Server Operators
    Print Operators
    Backup Operators
    Domain Admins
    Schema Admins
    Enterprise Admins
    Cert Publishers

    Every hour, the Windows domain controller that holds the primary domain
    controller (PDC) Flexible Single Master Operation (FSMO) role compares the
    ACL on all security principals (users, groups, and machine accounts) present
    for its domain in Active Directory.

    If the ACL is different, the ACL on the user object is overwritten to
    reflect the security settings of the AdminSDHolder object (which includes
    disabling ACL inheritance). This protects these administrative accounts from
    being modified by unauthorized users if the accounts are moved to a
    container or organizational unit in which a user has been delegated
    administrative privilege for the modification of user accounts. Note that
    when a user is removed from the administrative group, the process is not
    reversed and must be manually changed

    Description and Update of the Active Directory AdminSDHolder Object


    Delegated permissions are not available and inheritance is automatically

    AdminSDHolder Object Affects Delegation of Control for Past Administrator

    Security tab of the adminSDHolder object does not display all properties

    I hope that the information above helps you

    Good Luck
