"ps" shows the effective user id, not the real user id of a process usually.

Try to "kill" these processes as user sgeadmin and you'll see you won't

It's similar with the X server e.g. on Sun - it shows under your user id but
it's real uid is root.

Starting SGE daemons as user root is mandatory for the execd (unless you use
it for test only purposes), qmaster (if it binds a port below 1024) and it's
optional for the scheduler.
