Yes.  That's a feature, not a bug:  it means the person mounting the
device has control of the permissions on the base of the mounted

to either have the users mount the devices within their own
filesystems, or use fbtab(5) (or Xsetup, etc., as appropriate) to give
the console user the ownership of /cdrom.
