Setting up overrides in the official SourceBans versions works just fine, without the use of admins.cfg (and similar files) on each server, that's what I've been doing ... for years.
Sounds more like the cksurf (and/or cksurf fork) you are using isn't listening to commands properly, in which case you should consult the team of that fork, in order to retrieve an update that is listening properly to commands:
If the one you are using is the one from "github.com/fluffyst/Surftimer
", then a quick look seems to indicate that it does not allow overrides at all.
It is strictly looking whether you have ADMFLAG_ROOT, or the flag specified in the convar "ck_adminmenu_flag".
In order to adjust that behaviour, you need to have the Surftimer modified, where I would suggest you to consult the team of that "fork" so that they can make an update that allows the use of overrides.
