Can I set confluence-administrators group to only have Space Admin access?

I have two AD-based groups but in case if that has an issue, I'd like to have a separate space admin for just the confluence-administrators group that is built into Confluence. Everytime I try, it removes the confluence-administrators group from the list of Groups.

Per Confluence Admin Permission Levels Explained:

  • The confluence-administrators group defines a set of "super users" who can access the Administration Console and perform site-wide administration. Members of this group can also see the content of all pages and spaces in the Confluence instance, regardless of space permissions.

If you lose contact with the LDAP server, the members of the local confluence-administrators groups should still be able to log in and change the LDAP configuration, for example.
