If on the other hand, the default "SuperUser” account is "Disabled", then when ANY user with the SuperUser access level changes an account password, the SMS uses that logged-in user to modify the password and the "Set pwd.user-pwd-*******" is not logged in the audit log;

This issue is present on SMS 3.2.x and below. SMS v3.3.0 and above does not display alert in the audit logs. In addition, the SMS is not affected when the default "SuperUser" account is disabled.
