Yes, however it looks like they shouldn't be problem here.

Other than auditing the print job's label, and auditing the overriding
of those labels, the remaining auditable events are actions that the
system administrator would take.  Specifically, changing the label range
of the output devices, and going between printing unlabeled and labeled
information over an output device.  Capabilities will be needed for
those actions, and will be sufficient to generate the audit events
covering them.
