Public Folder Directory Rights Inheritance

When I go to properties of the ROOT public folder, Permissions tab, Directory rights button and add a user object, it defaults to full permissions.  I uncheck full permissions, but check "change permission" along with most of the others.  When this replicates down to the sub folders, the change permission is NOT checked; it's not replicated down.  I can manually check it on each public folder and sub folder, but that is not the way I want to do things.

Also, when I remove this user from the ROOT public folder, it stays in all public folder Directory rights lists...  Is this by design?

My goal here is to give a user object in that list the "change permission" for all existing and future public folders.  Currently, the user object has the change permission checked on the ROOT public folder in Directory Rights button. There are thousands of other public folder that this user object needs the change permission for.

Thank you in advance.
