Comment (by kenmoore):

 Are you talking about the user PCDM session? That obviously only needs
 user permissions to kill (that way the user has a way to close a
 broken/stuck session and return to the login manager).

 The way it works is that there is a PCDM "daemon" process that will
 automatically startup a new X/GUI session whenever the previous one is
 killed/closed. This makes sure that the user does not log out and is then
 stuck at a command-line login prompt when the system is setup to use PCDM
 for logins.
