I did not take into account that you WP installation is multisite.
BuddyPress defines its main user capability (if network activated) as ‘manage_network_options’ instead of ‘manage_options’.
It also uses directly ‘bp_moderate’ for the ‘Groups’ menu under the multisite and does not map it to the ‘manage_options’ as it makes for the single site WP.
So some BuddyPress menu items are not available for the single site simple ‘administrator’, but available for the superadmin only.
