I don't think it works like this all the time. For example, you have
SELinux enabled by default in Fedora. You also have firewall enabled by
default. Enabling those tools by default is a policy Fedora is
enforcing, and you as a user (or organization) can disable it manually.
This is similar to the root account situation.
