Exchange Permissions inherited for admin, showing in PS report

I've got a PS report that I run that tells me who has access to mailboxes other than their own. On this report, i have one admin who is showing to have permissions to several mailboxes, yet these do not show in EAC. I have ran the PS command to remove their permissions, but it's still showing on my report.

Here is the PS report I'm pulling: Get-Mailbox | Get-MailboxPermission | where {$_.user.tostring() -ne “NT AUTHORITY\SELF” -and $_.IsInherited -eq $false} | Select Identity,User,@{Name=’Access Rights’;Expression={[string]::join(‘, ‘, $_.AccessRights)}} | Export-Csv

Any ideas?

By default there are few System/Design mailbox permissions are enabled on a Mailbox which does not show in EAC but PS will show. This is default behavior and don't change then as such permissions help you to manage Compliance/Discover/Litigation Hold etc.

Thank you Amit, but we are trying to remove these permissions to these specific mailboxes.  Any idea how to remove them?
Amit KumarCommented:
Remove-MailboxPermission is CMDLet to remove permissions, however being Exchange Admin I won't recommend to remove system permissions. You can remove permissions for non-system user or service accounts if required.
