Probably nothing,, are you sure the controls are locked?  You kind of 
bypass that when you start network-admin as root, (as you do with sudo).

There is no need to use sudo for this, as network admin uses policykit. 
  if you have the privilege to sudo, you have the privilige to unlock 
the dialogue.
