By default, are domain admin granted extra security privileges in
Sharepoint.....because they are administrators on the Sharepoint server?

If so how can this be changed?

By default, local not domain  admins have privileges  on the server. Of
course, many orgs have domain admins  in the local admin  groups. Local
admins with no other role assigned in SPS can basically read and set
security on any folder or file in the system, but not create or write
ect. This allows an org to never "lock" themselves out of any doc. No
way to remove this special access, the best way to deal with this is to
limit your local admin groups.

No. You can only deny access to a particular file and the local admin
account access is not affected by this denial.
