Why would a domain user want to use explicit rights as the enterprise domain admin to logon?  Please see example with confidential details changed.

look at who the domain user is.  most likely this is

- a legit admin following best practive of using 2 accounts (1 unprivileged, 1 privileged) and then using RunAs to open an admin program requiring his privileged account

- task scheduler starting up a logon session for a program to run under admin authority
