USRPRF(*OWNER) and USEADPT(*YES) are two unrelated things. Well maybe not
unrelated but it makes no sense for a program to have both.

USRPRF(*OWNER) says to not use the authority of the user currently running
the program but to adopt the authority of the person who owns this program
USEADPT(*YES) says if there is an unbroken chain of USEADPT(*YES)
throughout the call stack all the way up to some program which does
USRPRF(*OWNER) then to use that adopted authority. For example, let's say
you have an intitial program called BPCSMENU and it is owned by SSA and it
has USRPRF(*OWNER). BPCSMENU calls PGMA owned by SMITTY which has
USRPRF(*USER) USEADPT(*YES) then it will continue to use the adopted
authority of SSA. If PGMA calls PGMB then this chain continues until the
first program that has USEADPT(*NO).

But, yes, I would check for the presence of one or the other of these.

There are some scenarios in which adopting authority does no good. Mainly
accessing data in the stream file system outside of the /qsys.lib system.
This will require using the profile handle APIs.
