Well, first, if you install a graphical UI on a system that runs production-critical tasks, you're doing it wrong.

Second, the UI systems I've seen use dmesg to bypass the normal IO flow, and assign permissions to grant permissions to the UI, not the user, to perform tasks such as shutdown and network configuration. It does this specifically so the system can have base-level users that don't want to get into the system administration game.

If you don't want to UI to have those permissions....remove those permissions. It's not terribly hard, and it's generally not an oversight.
