Admin doesn't get message about pending flags

I’ve noticed that admins don’t get the PM that is sent by the system user to moderators in case a topic is flagged (notify about flags after).

Is this intended behavior?

Yes it is. Note the description of the setting (emphasis mine):

If there are flags that haven’t been handled after this many hours, send a personal message to moderators. Set to 0 to disable.

The idea here is that some admins may solely be there to help administer the site itself, not deal with day-to-day moderation. If an admin wants to receive these PMs, they can be a moderator as well as an admin.


Excellent, thanks for the explanation. Makes perfect sense and I’ll make myself moderator then.
