Oops, mea culpa ... I wasn't aware that there was indeed a problem with MF and "P" (that's what I get by replying to something before preview-skimming the inbox first...), and your original message did not specify if you already had the "P" setting, so I wrongly assumed you had it setup to default and the code was doing the correct thing ...
I wasn't trying to imply (by any means) that you did not know what you were doing, and I hope you didn't interpret it as such!

Group Owners are indeed exempt from this (and other stuff), if they are set correctly. It's not an issue of Owner/Mod vs Member, it's the way the individual's person setting works, the system just does its thing as it's supposed to do without caring if you are a mod or member.
You have your owner account set to "group default setting", that's why this is happening.
Change your owner (and mods') setting to "override: can always post", and your problem will go away. That will also bring you closer to admin "best practices", as one should always want their admin stuff have all the power they need AND exercise it without any hindrance.
Implied or not, it turns out it was the case! I had not realized that the Group default applied to a Group Owner.
I have tested again with the 'P' setting and this does resolve my concern. At least I think I have it right this time.
Thanks to you and J for herding me in the right direction.
