Only if you make it.  If you put root into a group that is mapped to the
'domain administrators' group, then then root is a domain admin -
otherwise it's just another account.

Power users is a matter of going to each machine, and putting what
users/groups you want in there - but the 'local administrators' includes
all members of the 'domain administrators' group on the DC by default,
when you join.
