Not only does QSYS not have to own QINSTAPP, it would be unnatural for it to do so. QINSTAPP can be owned by any profile that you like with two caveats in mind: 1) The profile must already be known to the system (which makes QUSER and QPGMR good candidates). 2) The profile must have enough authority to execute the instructions in the program. The second point may have a lot to do with why QSYS owns the QINSTAPP in question here. Just for fun, (temporarily) turn on User Profile auditing for QSYS and then restore the object and see what they are up to. You'll likely find that they are either being devious (changing stuff they shouldn't), or just plain stupid (assuming way more authority than they really need).
