Yes, unless you change the NTFS permissions.

so the default is yes, they have all access - but that can be restricted/controlled?

if this is to be restricted/controlled, another local admin can do that (to another local admin)?

If you have attached a SAN, which contains NTFS permissions, a member of the Domain, e.g. Domain Users, can remove permissions for the Local Administrator and define new permissions and access to groups and users.
