The local Administrators group on workstations and standalone servers,
yes; it does not concern the domain controllers at all, since their
SAM (the domain SAM) contains the users directly.

The effect of adding a user to the DOMAIN\Administrators group is that
they would be local admins of the domain controllers only.  It's not
necessary for normal operation, and I don't think it's done much,
unless you trust people with your DCs but not your SQL servers.
