It was my understanding that guards, who are assigned to guard a certain thing or person, have pretty much absolute authority over anyone trying to intrude upon what's guarded.

Pretty much so. I worked in some secure facilities while in the Army. If you weren't on the access roster, you weren't getting into the building no matter how many stars you had on your collar. Period.
