Basically, if I understood correctly, you want them to administer only
some vhosts, not the whole server.

For that, don't define such admins as server admins:
{acl, admin, {user, "user34", "example.org"}}. %% NO!

Instead, define them as admins of a specific vhost:
{host_config, "example.org",
  {acl, admin, {user, "user34", "example.org"}}

Or go to the webadmin and check yourself that those users are only
described as admins in the ACL pages of the corresponding vhosts, not
on the whole/root ACL page.
