Unintended creation of new custom fields, resolutions and users by non admin users during migration

I have seen when a user migrates data to Jira, it auto creates custom fields, resolutions and users that are not in JIRA. Being an admin, this is concerning to my team as a normal user can create custom fields leading to performance issues. Basically this happens when the data being migrated has the values that JIRA does not have. Any solution?

This should only occur when using the Import Tool, which is admin only. The user-facing CSV import tool, in the Issues Menu, doesn't allow you to create values or fields.
