The following meta capabilities are used within core but do not have any handling (no case statement) in map_meta_cap(). While this is functionally fine, it does mean that it's not possible to complete the meta capability tests in #38191.

  • create_sites
  • delete_sites
  • manage_network
  • manage_sites
  • manage_network_users
  • manage_network_plugins
  • manage_network_themes
  • manage_network_options

Meta capabilities with no handling in map_meta_cap() fall back to requiring a primitive capability of the same name, so this is the functionality that should occur in map_meta_cap(). This has no functional change as these capabilities are only available to super admins.
