The moderate_forum is one of those combined permissions that is closely related to everything that a moderator should be able to do. If the choice would be between admin_forum, which is used to administrate the forum (in YaBB SE the is_admin check would be used) and moderate_forum, which is the ultimate moderator permission (in YaBB SE this used to be the stuff for the global moderator group and the local moderator group), I would still choose 'manage censored words' to be something regulated by moderators and not by administrators.
So, in short, this is a by-design thing. If it would no longer fall under moderate_forum, in my opinion it should be a separate permission, but that would not be feasible for 2.0.
