Easy Mode forced even on admin when force admin not checked

So, I was struggling with getting easy mode turned off for a user account on their own site in a network that they admin. I had the settings to force easy mode for all but admin, but admins could still not turn off each mode, even though my account could - which makes sense since it's a super admin account. Anyway, the only way to give the ability to toggle easy mode off was to take the force easy mode off all the levels. does the account having a subscriber level on the parent site of a network, make it so they cannot toggle off easy mode on a site they admin in a network?
