I dont believe access is necessarily needed when provisioning a drive for bitlocker. Its useful to have so you can maybe setup the recovery to be exported to AD (Microsoft best practice to export the bitlocker recovery keys to AD)

Not necessary. But AD backup would have to be done using a script, then - but that's simple.
