Pawtucket and managing Access control


I am experimenting with managing access control for users and I came across this statement in the Wiki document I have questions about. "When a user account is created from Pawtucket they are by default given only actions listed under "Pawtucket Actions." They are: Can Download Media, Can Share Objects via Email, Can Share Objects via Facebook, and Can Initiate Replication of Object Media to External Repositories."

The only action I want to enable for my users is "can download media." I especially will need to block any sharing via Facebook as that would violate privacy I am protecting.  I know how to check the boxes to restrict user actions when I create a user account from Providence but not when a user creates an account themselves from Pawtucket. How do the boxes under "Pawtucket Actions" get checked when a user account is created from Pawtucket? When a user creates an account from Pawtucket, are the boxes in "Pawtucket Actions" checked or blank? Meaning, are those actions disabled or enabled?  And once they create a login and register from Pawtucket, how am I able to control those actions in their account?
