SPEFARM Permissions

I used AutoSPInstaller to build a Farm but I am confused with Users Rights. Can the "SPS_FARM" create Web Application? It is in Farm Owners Group but It's not possible to create Web Application.

I already saw this link but I need more information.

I think that the reason is because SPS_FARM is not in Administrator local Group. I would like to know who is the user who can create Web Application in an installation made with AutoSPInstaller.

Thanks in advanced!

Why would you be creating web applications with the farm account? Normally you would not even log in with that account, it's strictly a service account only. The Setup account is actually the account that would actually be creating web apps (at least during the script).
