Have you tried using the newest version of the REST API (2.3)? If so, does the issue still occur?
We have Tableau Server 9.3 which can only work with Rest 2.2? I issued a 2.3 API call but got a 'Version '2.3' is not a valid version of the API.' error message.
I don't want to leave you hanging, we're currently investigating this exact issue and I'll reach out as soon as I have more info.

Okay so it looks like this is expected behavior that we hadn't updated in our documentation. The new documentation will read:
This method can only be called by server administrators or site administrators. In addition, site administrators have some limitations in what changes they can make to users:
- Site administrators cannot set the fullName value.
- Site administrators can change the email and password values only if the caller is a site administrator for all sites that the user is a member of.
- Site administrators can change the siteRole value only if the site is configured to allow site administrators to add and remove site users.
