Sadly you described most of the mods on this forum. A lot of the mods here are power hungry. It's not much to worry about as long as you stay out of thier way.
You'll notice also that these same mods tend to favor other people on the forum (this goes especially in the Misc. section). This also isn't that big of a deal either, but these people tend to be assholes. So I'd avoid them, really.
Most of the Pokemon sections are modded very well, though.
