When doing BW Extractions can ALEREMOTE bypass authorizations?

I was sitting in a meeting today about how a consultant wanted/required access to every table in R/3 for his BW extraction. My first response was no and he said that if they had access to ALEREMOTE they could extract all tables. I explained that ALEREMOTE did not have access to all tables either and he said that using this ID allows them to do extractions without doing any authorization checks.

I've been searching SAP Marketplace and SNC for this information but have not found any data to back this up. My assumption is that he assumed ALEREMOTE had SAP_ALL (which it doesn't). Has anyone ever come across an issue with ALEREMOTE bypassing authorization checks?
