Its more of a Security issue with respect to OS.

does this mean
"BUILTIN\Windows Authorization Access Group"
has to be a SQL login as a good practice?

Dropping / Disabling BUILTIN\Local administrators from SQL Server would be good if you would change the administrators in the Server machine more often as this group would by default have sysadmin privileges.
Or in other words, grant the required rights loginwise either Windows login or SQL login.

Hope this clarifies.
