Any idea why this is required?
Technet mentions securityadmin and dbcreator only.
Is it just for ease ?

found an answer here in the functions script (in the function CheckSQLAccess).

If we are provisioning PerformancePoint but aren't running SharePoint 2010 Service Pack 1 yet, we need sysadmin in order to run the RenameDatabase function

# We also evidently need sysadmin in order to configure MaxDOP on the SQL instance if we are installing SharePoint 2013
