A super administrator can manage_site & manage_network. This can't be done by an Administrator. These rights are only useful when managing multiple, linked, WP sites.

One thing my team noticed was that when using a Gutenberg Custom HTML block, certain tags would get "sanitized" when entered by a non-superadmin user. Content entered by a superadmin account was not getting altered. Has anyone encountered something similar?
