Seems that I have assigned the all the permissions to a group with specific AD users, although seems they are unable to clear alarms and do a few other tasks even though it shows it as a permission in the VSphere.  Is there a way to check this?

Seems like the users are trying to change alarm settings on objects like Datacenter/Cluster/VM level.
Most of the Alarms are defined at vCenter object level and will be open to edit/make change only at vCenter object level under Alarms>Definitions.

See if these users are able to change it at vCenter level.
